>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: HERE. >> D. ROBINSON: HERE.

>> D. SMITH: HERE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HERE.

WILL EVERYONE PLEASE RISE FOR THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE AMERICAN FLAG?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SUBMIT COMMENTS, FEEL FREE TO EMAIL AT COUNCIL AT WORTHINGTON.ORG OR CALL ON THE PHONE NUMBER LISTED BELOW AND CONFERENCE ID.

THE NUMBERS ARE ON THE CITY WEBSITE IF YOU DON'T GET A CHANCE TO WRITE IT DOWN. WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON.

[4. Visitor Comments]

UNDER VISITOR COMMENTS, IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING WE HAVE A VISITOR WHO WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A PRESENTATION TO US.

KAY, COULD YOU PLEASE LET US KNOW WHO IS HERE?

>> D. KAY THRESS: A RESIDENT, DAVID PATTEN FROM THE COLONIAL HILLS AREA THAT WOULD LIKE O SPEAK WITH COUNCIL TONIGHT.

MR. PATTEN? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'RE HAPPY YOU ARE HERE. WE HAVE ONE RULE FOR VISITOR COMMENTS, WE LIMIT YOU TO FIVE MINUTES.

OTHER THAN THAT, THE FLOOR IS YOURS.

>> DEAR LORD, I HOPE I CAN DO THIS IN FIVE MINUTES.

OKAY. I HAVE YOU ON VIEWER TOO FOR MEETING. THIS IS DAVE ATTEN IN COLONIAL HILLS. JANUARY 5, I SUBMITTED A PETITION TO COUNCIL FOR SAFER CROSSINGS AT KEN BROOK AND SOUTHBOUND FOSTER AVENUE. WE WENT AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE AREA FOR THE PETITION, 53 SIGNATURES OF RESIDENTS THAT WOULD LIKE TO HAVE SOME KIND OF TRAFFIC CONTROL FOR SOUTHBOUND FOSTER. AND TO SLOW THINGS DOWN FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN IN THE AREA.

WE'RE LOOKING AT POSSIBLE FOUR-WAY TOP SIGN AT FOSTER AND KEN BROOK. MARKERSION ACROSS FOSTER OR SIGNS TO REDUCE VEHICLE SPEEDS TO ALLOW FOR SAFER USE OF PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY IN THE ADJACENT CITY PARKLAND.

THERE HAS BEEN INCREASED NUMBER OF CHILDREN IN THE COLONIAL HILLS. AND BEING AS I LIVE ON THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF FOSTER AND SELBY.

MY DRIVEWAY IS OFF OF FOSTER, MY DECK FACES FOSTER AND NORTH OF FOSTER AS WELL. I HAVE OBSERVED MANY TIMES TRAFFIC COMING OVER THAT HILL AT A SPEED QUITE A BIT FASTER THAN 25 MILES PER HOUR. COMING DOWN, IF THERE IS KIDS IN THE AREA, THEY ARE IN DANGER OF BEING HIT BY CARS.

WE'VE PUT THIS PETITION TOGETHER TO HOPEFULLY SLOW THIS TRAFFIC DOWN FOR THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN.

I'VE BEEN HERE 41 YEARS AND I'VE NEVER SEEN THIS MANY KIDS IN ONE AREA IN THAT 41 YEARS I'VE BEEN HERE.

SAFETY TO THE KIDS IS PARAMOUNT. AND I NOTICED, I HINK ON FRIDAY, THERE WAS A SPEED DETECTOR PUT UP N THE TELEPHONE OR LIGHT POLE AT THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF FOSTER AND KEN BROOK TO CHECK THE SPEED OF PEOPLE COMING VER.

I WOULD LIKE THE COUNCIL TO AT LEAST CONSIDER THE PETITION.

AND HOPEFULLY GIVE A GO FOR THIS. AND I REALIZE THERE IS OTHER THINGS THAT MITIGATE, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN STOP SIGN AT SELBY THERE IS THERE NOW AND LINE OF VIEW AND STUFF LIKE THAT. BUT I ACTUALLY I SAW A CLOSE CALL TODAY AND I YELLED AT KIDS TOO TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE WALKING TO CROSS THE STREET. I APOLOGIZED TO A PARENT, I YELLED AT YOUR KIDS BECAUSE I CARE ABOUT THEM.

LIKE I SAID, IT'S BASICALLY THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE FOR THE KIDS.

AND PEOPLE HAVE A TENDENCY TO FORGET, THIS IS A RESIDENTIAL AREA. THE SPEED LIMIT IS 25 MILES AN

[00:05:02]

HOUR. AND WHEN THEY ARE COMING UP THE HILL THEY GAIN SPEED AND HEN THEY GET TO THE REST THEY DON'T SLOW DOWN AND RUN THE STOP IGN AT FOSTER TOO.

ANYTHING THAT WOULD BE GREAT TO SLOW THE TRAFFIC IN THIS AREA FOR THE SAFETY OF THE KIDS. LIKE I SAID, I THINK I MENTIONED, WE HAVE 53 SIGNATURES ON THIS PETITION FOR THE PEOPLE

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. PATTEN. I KNOW WHEN I RAN FOR OFFICE THIS LAST TIME I WAS AMAZED HOW MANY NEW FAMILIES HAD MOVED INTO THE GENERAL COLONIAL HILLS AREA. ACTUALLY, THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE CITY WE HAD INFLUX OF YOUNG FAMILIES AND THE COMMUNITY IS GROWING WITH YOUNG FAMILIES AND YOUNG CHILDREN.

WHAT WE NORMALLY DO WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS, UNLESS THERE IS AN OBJECTION, WE HAVE A SAFETY COMMITTEE MADE UP OF THE CITY MANAGER, FIRE DIRECTORS. AND LOOK OVER AT THE OPTIONS AND REPORT BACK. THEY HAVE A MONTHLY MEETING.

SO REPORT BACK TO US IN JULY AS TO THE THOUGHTS AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF WHATEVER THAT IS PRESENTED YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORS, I'LL LET YOU KNOW AND YOU LET YOUR NEIGHBORS KNOW SO

THEY CAN COME AND PARTICIPATE. >> I HAVE THE ORIGINALS F YU

WANT THEM. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I THINK WE'RE GOOD WITH THE COPY YOU SUBMITTED.

>> OKAY. >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, IF I MAY? YOU BEGAN OUTLINING THE PROCESS.

AND MR. PATTEN, IF IT'S OKAY, I'LL FOLLOW-UP WITH YOU.

AND SOMETIMES WE LIKE TO MEET ON SITE IN THE ERA OF COVID-19, WE'LL DO THAT IF YOU ARE WILLING WITH MASKS ON AND ALL THAT OTHER KIND OF STUFF. BUT WE OFTEN WANT TO DO A FIELD REVIEW. WE'VE PUT WHAT WE CALL STEALTH SET UP TO CATCH SPEEDS AND VOLUME OF TRAFFIC.

AND THAT'S ALL TO HELP THE SAFETY COMMITTEE REVIEW ITS OPTIONS. FOR THE BENEFIT OF OF EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE COUNCIL, WHEN THE SAFETY COMMITTEE LOOKS AT THESE THINGS WE HAVE CODIFIED ORDINANCES WE HAVE TO COMPLY WITH AND OHIO LAW WE HAVE TO FOLLOW THE OHIO MANUAL OF UNIFORM TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICES. SO WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT IS WHETHER -- HAT KIND OF MEASURES WOULD BE PPROPRIATE FOR THAT AREA AND WHETHER THEY MEET WHAT IS CALLED THE WARRANTS IN THE MANUAL. BUT IN ADDITION TO THAT, YOU'VE ADOPTED A BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN AND STATED THROUGH YOUR COMPLETE STREETS POLICY WILLINGNESS TO CONSIDER OTHER ENGINEERING STRATEGIES TO SLOW DOWN TRAFFIC OTHER THAN JUST THINGS THAT MIGHT BE WHAT YOU CAN CALL DEVICES.

AND SO SITE REVIEW AND SOME CONVERSATION WITH THE NEIGHBORS MAYBE USEFUL TO US AS WE LOOK AT OTHER ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS AS WELL. SO WE'LL REACH OUT TO YOU IF

THAT'S OKAY TO DO THAT. >> THAT'S FINE.

ABSOLUTELY. >> M. GREESON: OUR TEAM WILL LOOK AT IT. AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS AS PROMOTE. CERTAINLY, AN INTERESTING AREA BECAUSE T HAS A LONG KIND OF HILL AND DIP AND A LONG STRETCH WITH NO STOP SIGNS. AND SO I CAN SEE WHY THE RESIDENTS HAVE EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT IT.

>> RIGHT. AND WE DO HAVE THAT GREEN AREA THAT KIDS LIKE TO COME DOWN AND PLAY IN.

IN ORDER TO DO SO THEY HAVE TO CROSS FOSTER TO GET TO IT.

I APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH. I KNOW THE NEIGHBORS DO.

AS LONG AS MY TRUCK IS IN THE DRIVEWAY, I'M HOME.

>> M. GREESON: YES, SIR. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AND THANK YOUR NEIGHBORS ALSO. >> R. DOROTHY: I WOULD LIKE TO THANK MR. PATTEN FOR BRINGING THIS ISSUE FORWARD AND COLLECTING THE SIGNATURES OF THE PEOPLE AROUND THERE.

WE DO HAVE MANY PEOPLE THROUGHOUT WORTHINGTON OMPLAIN ABOUT RESIDENTIAL SPEEDS BEING TOO FAST.

I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE THAT MAYBE WE COULD LOOK AT A PILOT PROJECT OF HAVING OTHER ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS,

[00:10:01]

ESPECIALLY SINCE WE HAVE SIGNATURES OF THE IMMEDIATELY SURROUNDING NEIGHBORS THAT THEY WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HAVING SOME SORT OF SOLUTION PROPOSED. ESPECIALLY, IF IT'S A TEMPORARY JUST TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON, I THINK THIS WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE TO TRY IT. AND MAYBE IMPLEMENT THROUGHOUT WORTHINGTON. I KNOW THE WHOLE CITY OF MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO MOREO TO- BICYCLE OR PEDESTRIAN DEATH SAID. OTHER CITIES HAD 20 AS PLENTY OR REDUCING THE SPEED LIMIT TO 20 MILES PER HOUR BECAUSE SPEED KILLS. THERE IS A REASON WHY SCHOOL ZONES ARE 20 MILES PER HOUR. I APPRECIATE MR. PATTEN, YOU BRINGING FORTH THE CONCERN IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN STEP UP TO THE CHALLENGE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. ANY OTHER COUNCILMEMBERS HAVE

ANYTHING OR CAN WE MOVE ON? >> D. SMITH: DOUG HERE.

I WANTED TO ECHO S. DOROTHY'S THOUGHTS.

I NOW WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT BEING CREATIVE WITH THE SOLUTIONS FOR ENGINEERING FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS IN DIFFERENT PART OF THE CITY. SO MANY NEIGHBORS IN THIS CORRIDOR ARE READY TO JUMP ON SOMETHING, WHATEVER THE SOLUTION, MAYBE OUR TEAM CAN THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.

APPRECIATE IT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

ALL RIGHT. ANYBODY ELSE? IF NOT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. AS WE MENTION, THE SAFETY COMMITTEE WILL BE REVIEWING THIS.

AND THERE IS GOING TO BE MORE FOLLOW-UP ACTION.

WE'LL MAKE SURE YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORS ARE INCLUDED, NVOLVED

AND PART OF THE SOLUTION. >> MS. KAY HAS MY EMAIL ADDRESS AND I WILL SEND HER MY PHONE NUMBER AND WILL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: GREAT. THANK YOU AGAIN, WE APPRECIATE

YOUR EFFORT ND TIME ON THIS. >> SIGNING OFF.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MOVING ONTO JOE SHERMAN WITH THE UPDATE ON THE COMMUNITY VISIONING PROCESS.

MR. SHERMAN. ARE YOU THERE?

>> I DO NOT SEE HIM BY NAME. THERE WERE TWO OTHER PHONE NUMBERS THAT I DO NOT KNOW WHO THOSE INDIVIDUALS ARE.

BUT AND I WAS HOPING ONE OF THEM WAS MR. SHERMAN.

I DO KNOW HE HAS THE LINK. AND WAS READY FOR THE MEETING TONIGHT. HOPEFULLY HE WILL BE JOINING US

SHORTLY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

I'M GOING TO MOVE DOWN. LET ME KNOW WHEN LEE COMES IN AND WE'LL JUSTICE MOVE HIM IN THE AGENDA WHEN EVER HE ARRIVES.

[6. Approval of the Minutes]

MOVING TO THE APPROVAL OF HE MINUTES OF THE MAY 18TH AND JUNE 1ST MEETINGS, INTRODUCED BY MR. BUCHER.

AND SECONDED BY MS. KOWALCZYK. ARE THERE ANY CHANGES, ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, ANYTHING THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN REGARDING THOSE MINUTES? IF NOT, ALL IN FAVOR.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. THE MINUTES ARE APPROVED.

MOVING ONTO ORDINANCE 11,-2020. ORDINANCE TEXT AMENDMENT - PUD

[7.A. Ordinance No. 11-2020 Codified Ordinance Text Amendment - PUD Caliper Inch Fee]

CALIPER INCH FEE TO AMEND SECTION 1174.05(C)(B) OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON TO AMEND THE CALIPER INCH FEE ASSOCIATED WITH THE NATURAL FEATURES SECTION OF THE DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS AND DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS TEXT FOUND IN THE PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT. WE'LL GET INTO THIS.

I WANT TO GET THE AMENDMENT IN PLACE FIRST.

THE ONLY AMENDMENT, THE MOTION TO AMEND WE'RE GOING TO NEED IS JUST AMENDING THE FACT THAT THIS ORDINANCE HAD BEEN REVIEWED BY THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION.

AND THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS WERE INCLUDED IN THE AMENDED ORDINANCE. THE AMENDMENT IS MOVED BY MR. SMITH AND SECONDED BY MR. MEYERS.

ANY DISCUSSION ON JUST THE AMENDMENT? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. OKAY.

MR. GREESON, WE'RE TURNING IT OVER TO YOU FOR THE

PRESENTATION. >> M. GREESON: I'LL WAIT A SECOND THERE. SOMEBODY HAS A PHONE RINGINGISM THANK YOU FOR MUTING. I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. THIS IS AN ITEM WE'VE TALKED ABOUT A NUMBER OF TIMES WHERE THIS IS DISPREPPANCY BETWEEN TWO SECTIONS OF CODE RELATED TO TREE FEES. THIS HELPS CLEAN IT UP.

IT'S COMINGIC BACK FOR PUBLIC HEARING.

AND I THINK IT'S CERTAINLY A STAFF PRESENTATION REVIEW OF IT

[00:15:03]

IS IN ORDER. MR. BROWN, IF YOU WOULD.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL AS YOU MAY KNOW AND MIGHT REMEMBER DURING THE INTRODUCTION IN MARCH BEFORE THE PANDEMIC, ON MARCH 2ND YOU INTRODUCED THE LANGUAGE TO GO TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION.

MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION COULD START THERE DISCUSSION IN REVIEWING THE POSSIBILITY OF AMENDING THE FEE. CURRENTLY THE CALIPER INCH FEE WAS 450 FOR ANY TREE OVER SIX INCHES IN SIZE.

IN 2016 WHEN WE DID THE WILSON BRIDGE CORRIDOR, ANYTHING OVER SIX INCHES, AND DURING THAT DISCUSSION WE AMENDED IT TO 150 PER CALIPER INCH. AFTER DOING DILIGENCE TO LOOK AT SURROUNDING JURISDICTIONS AND MOVE THINGS ALONG.

FLASHFORWARD, FOUR YEARS LATER WE STARTED LOOKING AT KIND OF TRYING TO ADJUST THAT FEE. IT KIND OF CAME TO LIGHT WHEN WE WERE DOING THE APARTMENTS ON EAST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD.

AND CAME UP AGAIN WHEN DOING STAFFORD VILLAGE, THE REDEVELOPMENT THERE EARLIER IN THE YEAR.

AS PART OF THAT, WHEN YOU INTRODUCED IT ON MARCH 2ND, WE TOOK IT TO THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION ON MARCH 12 FOR DISCUSSION. HAD A HEALTHY DISCUSSION AT THE MARCH 12 MEETING. AND THE RECOMMENDATION FROM MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION AT THAT TIME WAS TO ADJUST THE FEE FROM 450 PER CALIPER INCH TO 150 PER CALIPER INCH.

IN THAT DISCUSSION, I KNOW WE ATTACHED THE MEETING MINUTES.

I'LL HIGHLIGHT SOME OF THE THINGS THE OARD DISCUSSED.

ONE, WE NEEDED TO LOOK AT OUR FEES.

KIND OF ACROSS-THE-BOARD, NOT JUST OUR CALIPER INCH FEES.

WAS THAT FEE ENOUGH? WE DISCUSSED THE WORTHINGTON'S STREET TREE PROGRAM AND COSTED ASSOCIATED WITH THAT.

THE BOARD OR COMMISSION DISCUSSED THE PENALTIES, WHAT TEETH DO WE HAVE, PROS AND CONS OF THE CITY WIDE TREE ORDINANCE.

AT THAT TIME, HEN MS. BITAR AND I DISCUSSED THE ADJUSTMENTS FROM 450 TO 150 WITH THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION WE DISCUSSED THE STREET TREE PROGRAM. THE COST OF THE HOMEOWNER AND TREE REPLACEMENT. HOWEVER, SINCE THEN, ONE OF THE FOLLOW-UP DISCUSSIONS WE HAD WITH THE CITY ARBORIST WAS THE TRUE COST RELATED TO THAT STREET TREE PROGRAM.

STAFF AT LEAST ON MY END DID NOT CAT CALCULATE THE CITY'S SHARE.

WE TOOK IT BACK ON MAY 14TH TO UPDATE THEM ON THE DISCUSSION ON THE. AND DISCUSS SHOULD WE ADJUST THE FEE BECAUSE WE HAD REFERENCED THE STREET TREE PROGRAM.

WOPS YOU ADD UP THE COSTS AND THE CITY'S PORTION, 230 TO 250 TO REPLACE A TREE IS WHAT IT CAME OUT TO.

THE MUNICIPAL LANNING COMMISSION HAD A HEALTHY DISCUSSION ON SHOULD WE LEAVE IT AT THE 150 OR UP IT TO 250.

THE COMMISSION MEMBERS DID A REAL GOOD JOB OF I THINK REINING ME BACK, THE 150 FOR CALIPER INCH IS EVERY TREE SIX INCHES AND OVER. IT'S NOT JUST A ONE-TIME FEE FOR THE TREE. IT'S CALIPER INCH, WHETHER IT'S SEVEN OR 70 INCHES, THAT TREE FEE STARTED AT 150 PER.

AFTER OUR MAY 14TH MEETING, THE COMMISSION REAFFIRMED THEY WANTED TO STAY AT THE 150 PER CALIPER INCH.

AND FORWARD THAT ONTO YOU AS COUNCILMEMBERS FOR YOUR DISCUSSION. KNOWN -- AT THE MARCH 12 AND MAE RECOMMENDATION WAS 150 CALIPER INCH.

AMENDING IT FROM THE 450. AND I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I DO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

MS. KOWALCZYK. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I LOOKED BACK AT OUR DISCUSSION IN 018 WITH REGARD TO GRANBY PLACE.

IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING IN TRYING TO UNDERSTAND OUR DISCUSSION THEN COMPARED TO NOW, IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THIS TREE FEE IS NOT APPLIED CROSS-THE-BOARD TO PROPERTIES.

THIS IS LIMITED N ITS APPLICATION.

AND IT WAS EVEN, DIFFERENT IN TERMS OF WILSON BRIDGE CORRIDOR, IT WAS HIGHER IN THAT AREA. AND THEY WERE SEEKING A WAIVER

[00:20:01]

OF THE ENTIRE FEE. AND I GUESS MY QUESTION OR COMMENT, WHEN WE HAD THAT CONVERSATION, THE FEE WAS NOT INTENDED TO MAKE MONEY. IT WASN'T NTENDED TO REIMBURSE FOR EXPENSES OR COVER THE COST OF PLANTING TREES.

I UNDERSTAND THAT WAS THE ANALOGY.

JUST TO BE CLEAR, LOOKING AT THE MINUTES, YOU CONFIRMED IT WAS REALLY A DETERRENT OR A PAUSE FOR DEVELOPERS SO THEY WOULDN'T CONSIDER CLEAR CUTTING A PROPERTY.

AND SO IN THOSE LOOKING AT IT FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE, EVEN IN THAT SITUATION WE ACTUALLY DECIDED TO WAIVE THE FEE ALTOGETHER BECAUSE IT WAS COST PROHIBITIVE FOR THE DEVELOPER.

IS THAT AN ACCURATE PORTRAYAL OF WHAT WE DISCUSSED AND KIND OF AN ACCURATE WAY OF LOOKING AT IT MOVING FORWARD?

>> I THINK YOU ARE SPOT ON. YOU SAID IT MUCH MORE ELOQUENTLY THAN I COULD. I THINK AS YOU MENTIONED, IT'S NOT A CITY WIDE. WE HAVE JUST ON WILSON BRIDGE ROAD CORRIDOR, THE 150 PER CALIPER INCH FOR PROPERTIES REZONED OR REDEVELOPED, NOT THE ENTIRE CORRIDOR.

WE HAVE FOUND IN THE PUD SECTION, THAT'S WHEN IT KICKS IN. IF YOU ARE DOING TYPICAL REZONING OR OTHER PROJECTS WE DON'T HAVE THAT FEE ASSOCIATED.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I THINK OUR CONVERSATION DISCUSSED IF WE DID WANTED TO TALK ABOUT PRESERVING TREES CITY WIDE.

PERHAPS CONSULTANT THE ARBOR ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND DO A DIFFERENT APPROACH THAN A TREE FEE?

>> YES, MA'AM, I THINK THERE IS MULTIPLE WAYS TO APPROACH IT.

I THINK IN HE PAST WHEN E WORKED WITH APPLICANT SAID GOING THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS, THE GOAL WHETHER SUBJECT TO A SECTION HAT HAS A TREE FEE ASSOCIATED, WE TRY TO WORK WITH DEVELOPER, APPLICANT OR HOMEOWNER TO WORK WITH THEM.

WE WORK TOWARDS PRES EVERRING AND GIVE OPTIONS TO SAVE A TREE STAND OR PRESERVE STEEP SLOPES. WE DID THE SUBDIVISION A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WHERE IN THE RECONFIGURATION OF THE SUBDIVISION OFF OF PLYMOUTH AND NEW ENGLAND, ABLE TO GET EASEMENT TO PROTECT THE TEEP SLOPE OODED AREA.

THERE IS WAYS TO WORK WITH PROPERTY OWNERS TO GET THE BENEFIT OF A PROPERTY THAT HAS UNIQUE FEATURES, WHETHER THE TREES OR SLEEP -- STEEP SLOPE SAID -- SLOPES.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: THAT'S FINE. I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE 150. THAT MAKES SENSE.

I WANTED TO UNDERSTAND THE CONTEXT OF THE PROPOSAL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU.

DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS?

>> D. ROBINSON: I DO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY,

MR. ROBINSON. >> D. ROBINSON: MY UNDERSTANDING OF THIS FEE IS THAT THE OVERALL PURPOSE IS TO MAINTAIN, AND IF ANYTHING, TO GROW THE URBAN FOREST IN WORTHINGTON, TO MAINTAIN OUR TREE CANOPY. I WOULDN'T DESCRIBE IT AS A DETERRENT TO RESPONSIBILITY DEVELOPMENT BUT A RECOGNITION THAT IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE AMOUNT OF TREES WE HAVE IN THE CITY, THIS IS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO SUPPORT THAT GOAL.

I WOULD THINK MOVING FORWARD BUT THAT IF ANYTHING THE TREE FEE SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO NOT ONLY P.U.D. DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS BUT TO ALL COMMERCIALLY ZONED PROPERTY IN THE CITY.

THAT WOULD BE ME SUGGESTION FOR ENHANCING THE TREE CANOPY IN

WORTHINGTON. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

ANY OTHER COMMENTS? QUESTIONS FROM ANYBODY? RESPONSES TO MS. KOWALCZYK OR MR. ROBINSON?

>> D. ROBINSON: I HOPE CLARIFYING THE DOLLAR AMOUNT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE TO ME. I HOPE WE'RE NOT TOO LIBERAL T GRANTING VARIANCES MOVING FORWARD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? HEARING NONE, MS. KOWALCZYK, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL ON THIS ORDINANCE?

>> D. KAY THRESS: MS. THRESS WILL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I'M SORRY, MS. KOWALCZYK.

I'M LOOKING AT YOU AND SAID THE WRONG NAME.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I'D GIVE IT A GO.

>> D. ROBINSON: YES. >> B. KOWALCZYK: YES.

[00:25:04]

>> R. DOROTHY: YES. >> D. SMITH: YES.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: YES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES.

ORDINANCE 11-2020 IS PASSED. MOVING ONTO ORDINANCE 20-2020.

[7.B. Ordinance No. 20-2020 Appropriation - HVAC Replacement at the Police Station.]

AMENDING ORDINANCE NO. 45-2019 (AS AMENDED) TO ADJUST THE ANNUAL BUDGET BY PROVIDING FOR AN APPROPRIATION FROM THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS FUND UNAPPROPRIATED BALANCE TO PAY THE COST OF PHASE II ENERGY CONSERVATION MEASURES, AUTHORIZE THE EXECUTION OF AGREEMENTS WITH ABM TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, LLC, AND DETERMINE TO PROCEED WITH THE PROJECT.

(PROJECT NO. 695-19). THIS IS GOING TO NEED A MOTION FOR AMENDMENT. AND MS. DOROTHY, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO AMEND THE SIXTH WHEREAS TO INSERT THE AMOUNT OF 844, $904, INCLUDE 835.19 OVER 20 YEARS.

SECTION ONE INSERT THE LANGUAGE OF $930,000 WHICH INCLUDES A 10% CONTINGENCY. MS. DOROTHY, WILL YOU MAKE THAT

MOTION? >> R. DOROTHY: I HAVE A FEW DIFFERENT NUMBERS THAT ARE REALLY CLOSE.

$844,964. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES.

I MUST HAVE TRANSPOSED IT. >> R. DOROTHY: $853,119.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. ROB INSON, WILL YOU SECOND THE

MOTION? >> D. ROBINSON: YES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'RE VOTING ON JUST THE MOTION.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY A YE.

TO INCLUDE THE NUMBERS THAT WERE READ.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. THE MOTION TO AMEND IS APPROVED.

MR. GREESON, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO YOU FOR MORE

DISCUSSION. >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AS YOU KNOW FROM OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM CONVERSATION LAST YEAR, WE'RE DOING A LOT OF IMPROVEMENTS TO THE POLICE STATION.

SOME LONG NEEDED AND OTHERS ONG NEEDED AND AIMED AT ENHANCING THE AIR QUALITY AND CONDITION FOR EMPLOYEES IN THAT BUILDING.

WE'RE DOING THE ROOF AND INTERIOR IMPROVEMENTS.

WE DID A VESTIBULE YOU APPROVED LAST WEEK.

AND THERE ARE NO MORE IMPORTANT PARTS OF THIS OVERALL PROJECT IN THE HVAC SYSTEM. WHICH YOU ARE CONSIDERING HERE THIS EVENING. SO BECAUSE OF THE IMPORTANCE I'M GOING TO SK MR. WHITED AND I BELIEVE MR. LINDSEY IS ALSO GOING TO CONTRIBUTE SOME TO GO OVER THIS PROJECT.

WE ALSO HAVE REPRESENTATIVES FROM ABM, THE CONTRACTOR WHO ARE GOING TO BE PERFORMING HE WORK. I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO R..

AND HE'S GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU, WHAT WE'RE DOING IN THIS

IMPORTANT PROJECT. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON.

YOU SUMMARIZED IT AS WELL AS IT GOES TOWARD THE HVAC SYSTEM.

THE PURPOSE IS TO MITIGATE HEALTH PROBLEMS AND PROVIDE SAVINGS TO THE ENERGY SYSTEM. FOR YOUR INTEREST, IT'S A BIG PROJECT, I FIGURE I SHOULD DESCRIBE.

THE HVAC IS SPLIT WITH DEDICATED OUTDOOR YSTEM UNITS THAT WILL DEHUMID FITHE AIR. AND IT DOES INCLUDE SOME SIGNIFICANT WORK IN PREPARATION FOR THE VESTIBULE PROJECT AND ROOF PROJECT BOTH. SO THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS TIED TOGETHER AS WELL AS INTERIOR MITIGATION AND REMEDIATION TO CLEAN WALLS, DUCTS, CARPETS, ET CETERA. THE HVAC SYSTEM HAS A 20-YEAR LIFE CYCLE. WE'LL BEGIN AS SOON AS WE CAN AND COORDINATE WITH OTHER PROJECT SAID.

LEAD TIMES, WHEN THEY START -- PROJECTS -- WILL AFFECT THAT SCHEDULE WHEN EQUIPMENT CAN COME INTO PLAY.

MR. LINDSEY IS OING TO SPEAK FOR A FEW MINUTES ABOUT THE CONTRACT ITSELF. AND THEN REPRESENTATIVES FROM ABM TAKE A BRIEF MOMENT TO EXPLAIN THE SYSTEM AND WHAT THEY WILL DO HICH I THINK IS WARRANTED IN THIS PROJECT.

I WILL NOTE IT'S UNLIKELY THAT CONTINGENCY WOULD BE USED BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THE CONTRACT WITH ABM.

AND I ASSUME EITHER MR. LINDSEY OR MR. SOCLE FROM ABM CAN CLARIFY. I'LL TURN IT OVER TO MR.

LINDSEY, THANK YOU. >> MR. LINDSEY: THANK YOU,

[00:30:03]

MR. WHITED, MR. GREESON, PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. MY PART IS REALLY A BRIEF PIECE OF THIS AS A REMINDER TO COUNCIL, MANY OF YOU WERE ON COUNCIL WHEN THIS PROJECT FIRST STARTED AND WHEN COUNCIL CHOSE TO USE OHIO REVISED CODE SECTION 717.02.

IT'S A SPECIAL PROVISION OF THE CODE THAT ALLOWS CITIES TO USE A SPECIAL PROCUREMENT SYSTEM FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION MEASURES.

THE PROCESS IS SIMILAR, ALTHOUGH DIFFERENT THAN A DESIGN BUILD.

WHAT YOU ARE ESSENTIALLY DOING IS YOU ARE AT THAT TIME WHEN THIS WAS INITIALLY DONE IN 2017 BY COUNCIL, WAS TO SELECT THROUGH A RFP PROCESS, A VENDOR THAT WOULD THEN DO THE ENERGY AUDIT AND CREATE A ENERGY CONSERVATION MEASURE REPORT WITH PROPOSED CHANGES TO HVAC, LIGHTING, TO OTHER ENERGY-SAVING DEVICES THAT MIGHT BE EMPLOYED IN THE CITY'S BUILDINGS.

AFTER THAT PROCESS, ABM WAS SELECTED AS THE VENDOR.

THEY THEN CONDUCTED THE REPORT PURSUANT TO STATUTE.

AND CREATED A REPORT THAT INDICATED VARIOUS CHANGES THAT CAN BE DONE, PRIMARILY IN HVAC SYSTEMS AND ALSO LIGHTING SYSTEMS, THE POOL, AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER WAS INCLUDED DURING THE PHASE ONE CHANGES. AND SO ABM SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE PHASE ONE OF THAT PROJECT.

AT THAT TIME, THE CITY MADE THE DECISION NOT TO DO THE CHANGES TO ALL OF THE BUILDINGS FROM AN APPROPRIATION AND FINANCING STANDPOINT. ONE OF THE FEATURES OF THIS STATUTE IS THE CITY CAN MAKE PAYMENTS OVER TIME FOR THE PROJECTS AND PROVIDES A REQUIREMENT OF A GUARANTEE OF THE SAVINGS THAT WOULD MEASURES THAT ARE CONSTRUCTED.

AND THOSE ENERGY MEASURES WOULD PAY THE COST OF THE IMPROVEMENTS. SO WE'RE NOW ON PHASE TWO.

SO THAT AS JUST KIND OF AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROCESS.

PHASE TWO ACTUALLY INCLUDES MULTIPLE BUILDINGS ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO INCLUDE MULTIPLE BUILDINGS.

DUE TO THE CONCERNS WITH THE HVAC AT THE POLICE BUILDING, THE CITY AND STAFF ARE PROPOSING GOING FORWARD WITH THE POLICE BUILDING IMPROVEMENTS AT THIS POINT NOT RULING OUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A PHASE TWO-B OR PHASE THREE, WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE CALLED AT THAT POINT. THAT'S THE OVERVIEW OF THE PROCESS. HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THAT. IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR CITIES TO BREAK THESE PROJECTS UP INTO MULTIPLE PHASES FOR THE VERY REASON THE CITY DIDN'T DO IT ALL AT ONCE, AND THAT IS FROM A FINANCING AND HOW MUCH WORK CAN YOU HAVE GOING ON AT THE SAME TIME. SO IF THERE ARE NO QUESTIONS, I WILL TURN IT BACK OVER TO MR. WHITED.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YOU ARE MUTED.

>> OOPS, SORRY ABOUT THAT. I GOT THE CAMERA.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER NOW FROM MR. LINDSEY TO MYSELF AND BACK OVER TO JOE SOCLE AND THE GUYS AT ABM TO SPEND A FEW MINUTES TELLING YOU ABOUT THE HVAC SYSTEM AND WHAT IT WILL ACCOMPLISH. JOE, ARE YOU THERE?

>> I AM, THANKS DAN. LET ME SEE IF I CAN GET ME CAMERA ON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF CE TIME TO LET US EXPLAIN A LITTLE BIT HERE.

I HAVE A COUPLE OF SLIDES I WANTED TO SHARE.

AND I GUESS I'LL NOTE THAT MR. WHITED AND MR. LINDSEY ARE MAKING MY JOB A LITTLE EASY, BECAUSE I THOUGHT THEY DID GREAT JOB OF EXPLAINING EVERYTHING.

I WANTED TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF A FURTHER DETAIL.

I'LL BE BRIEF. I KNOW IT'S A MAYBE A LENGTHY AGENDA TODAY. I'M GOING TO SEE IF I CAN GET THIS TO GO FULL SCREEN HERE. CAN EVERYONE VIEW THAT ALL

RIGHT? >> D. ROBINSON: YES, SIR.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES. >> OKAY.

PERFECT. WE'LL GET INTO A COUPLE OF DETAILS. BEFORE WE DO, I WANTED TO GIVE AN INTRODUCTION OF THE INDIVIDUALS WORKING ON THIS PROJECT. FROM TOP TO BOTTOM, THE PICTURES ARE LEFT TO RIGHT. I GUESS TRYING TO MAKE THAT AS LIFE LIKE AS POSSIBLE SINCE DOING THIS THROUGH MICROSOFT TEAMS. PAUL REITZ IS THE HEAD PROJECT

[00:35:02]

DEVELOPER. COMMUNICATING WITH SCOTT TREADWAY ENTRENCHED IN EVERYTHING GOING ON IN THE POLICE STATIONFELT PAUL. PAUL IS HELPING TO DEVELOP THE FINAL DELIVERY, READY TO GO. COMMUNICATING WITH PRATER ENGINEERING WHO DESIGNED THE NEW HVAC SYSTEM.

AMIT BATRA ENERGY ENGINEER. HE'S ENCHARGE OF LOOKING AT THE ACTUAL ENERGY SAVINGS THE MEASURES ARE GOING TO BE PRODUCING. AND THE ENERGY THAT ABM, THE DOLLARS GUARANTEEING TO THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON AS FAR AS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SYSTEM. SCOTT MASON IS ON THE CALL.

OUR REGIONAL DIRECTOR FOR ENERGY SERVICES.

OHIO FALLS INTO HIS REGION. AND TODD FISHER, THE GENERAL MANAGER FOR OUR COLUMBUS BRANCH IN OHIO.

AND HE OVERSEES THIS PROGRAM AS WELL AS A PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM WITH THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON THAT FALLS UNDER TODD. AND I'M JOE SOCLE.

AND I'LL BE PRESENTING TO YOU TONIGHT.

SOKOL. THAT'S MY JOB, MAKING SURE EVERYTHING IS TAKEN CARE OF. A LOT OF COMMUNICATION WITH MR. WHITED. HE'S HAD A LOT OF COMMUNICATION FROM ME AND MAKING SURE THIS IS A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT.

I'VE GOT ABOUT THREE OR FOUR SLIDES HERE.

WE'LL KIND OF POWER RIGHT THROUGH IT.

WANTED TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT OF A BACKGROUND.

I KNOW MOST OF YOU WERE INVOLVED FROM OUR PHASE ONE PROJECT.

BUT I'LL GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF A BACKGROUND OF OUR PARTNERSHIP, HOW WE GOT O THIS POINT, WHICH WAS ALREADY PRETTY SUMMARIZED BY MR. WHITED AND MR. LINDSEY.

AND REALLY, GIVE OU AN OVERVIEW OF THE SOLUTION A LITTLE BIT OF DETAILS TO KIND OF SHARE THE MAGNITUDE.

AND THEN THE VALUE ANALYSIS, WHICH IS BEEN DETAILED WITH YOUR AMENDMENT TO THE ORDINANCE. BUT WE'LL REVIEW THAT AS WELL.

AND THEN IF THERE IS ANY QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO INTERRUPT ME. OR YOU CAN WAIT UNTIL THE END.

WHATEVER YOU PREFER. BUT WE'LL MAKE SURE TO HAVE ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED. AS FAR AS OUR PARTNERSHIPS CONCERNED, WORTHINGTON IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ABM AND COLUMBUS BRANCH IN CENTRAL OHIO. A LOT OF COMPANIES WHEN GIVING PRESENTATIONS THEY WILL PUT LOGOS OF MAYBE APPLE OR NIKE ON THEIR TO SAY, WE WORK WITH THESE COMPANIES.

WE DO THAT WITH WORTHINGTON. PUTTING THAT WORTHINGTON LOGO N THE REALLY SIGNIFY QUALITY. WHENEVER WE ARE DOING WORK AT WORTHINGTON WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IT MEETS THE QUALITY STANDARD.

WE'VE DONE THAT THROUGH BEING YOUR PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE PROVIDER. ON HVAC SYSTEMS THROUGHOUT THE CITY. WE HELD THAT CONTRACT AND WE'VE GONE OUT TO BID A NUMBER OF TIMES.

I THINK WE'VE HELD THAT CONTRACT OVER 12 YEARS NOW.

I THINK IT'S COME TO BID IN THE NEAR FUTURE HERE.

WE'VE DONE A PHASE-ONE ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM, WHICH WE'VE DONE A KIND OF PRELIMINARY REPORT AS FAR AS THE ENERGY SAVINGS. I CAN TELL YOU AND MAYBE IT'S A LATER DISCUSSION, BUT THE ENERGY SAVINGS ARE OUTPERFORMING WHAT WE'VE GUARANTEED, SAVINGS THAT GO BACK TO THE CITY.

PHASE ONE AS NOTED BEFORE HAS BEEN A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT.

PHASE TWO, WHICH WAS KIND OF ALREADY CARVED OUT AND NOW PULLING A LITTLE PIECE OUT OF PHASE TWO TO GET THINGS MOVING FOR THE POLICE STATION AND GET THOSE ENERGY CONSERVATION MEASURES IN PLACE, WHICH BENEFIT FROM THE ENERGY SIDE AS WELL AS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, WHICH IS THE SAFETY SIDE FOR SOME OF THE OCCUPANTS IN THE BUILDING.

THE LAST THING I'LL NOTE IS WE'RE VERY CONSCIOUS AS FAR AS WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL DELIVERY OF PROJECTS.

AND IT COMES DOWN TO COORDINATING AND COMMUNICATION.

AND I HOPE MR. WHITED HASN'T GOTTEN TOO ANNOYED WITH OUR LEVEL OF COMMUNICATION. IF HE HAS, MAYBE THAT'S A GOOD THING TO KIND OF GET TO THAT POINT TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT'S NOT THE REASON ANYTHING IS BREAKING DOWN WITH COMMUNICATION WITH THE CITY OR COORDINATING AS FAR AS OTHER PARTIES INVOLVED.

IT WILL BE CRITICAL WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT ITEMS BEING REPLACED AND MEASURES TAKEN TO PRODUCE A AFE ENVIRONMENT.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ABM AND OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH YOURSELVES.

I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE TIMELINE HERE AS FAR AS HOW WE GOT HERE. WE HAD A, AS MR. LINDSEY POINTED OUT, THE SECTION OF THE OHIO REVISED CODE, THE ORDINANCE NUMBER HERE, WHICH ALLOWED ABM TO DO A FULL AUDIT OF ALL THE FACILITIES AND LOOK AT POTENTIAL ENERGY CONSERVATION.

WE DID THAT FOR ALL FACILITIES, BROUGHT THE MEASURES BACK TO

[00:40:05]

CITY ADMINISTRATION FOR SELECTION OF YOUR ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM. AND FOR THERE IS A NUMBER OF DETAILS OR REASONS WHY YOU WOULD INCLUDE CERTAIN ITEMS IN A PHASE ONE. AND I KNOW THAT WAS VERY -- THERE WAS A LOT OF FACTORS IN THAT DECISION FROM ADMINISTRATION. WE CAME ABOUT OUR PHASE ONE ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM, PASSED FROM ORDINANCE 11-2018.

AND THE REMAINDER OF THE ENERGY CONSERVATION PROGRAM MADE UP PHASE TWO. WHICH WAS PUT INTO THE C.I.P.

CURRENTLY IN THE C.I.P. AND I'M SURE IT WILL BE IN DISCUSSION AS YOU LOOK TOWARDS THE 2021 C.I.P.

BUT PART OF THAT HASE TWO WHICH WAS THE POLICE STATION ENERGY CONSERVATION WERE PULLED OUT BECAUSE THERE WERE SAFETY MEASURESS IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

WE HAD COUNTY COMMUNICATION WITH THE CITYISM PRATER ENGINEERING WHO COMPLETED THE FULL DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM, WE'VE HAD WEEKLY IF NOT DAILY COMMUNICATIONS WITH THEM.

ESPECIALLY SCOTT TREADWAY WHO HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH ALL THE OTHER PARTIES INVOLVED WITH MITIGATION AND REPLACEMENT OF ITEMS IN THAT BUILDING. AND WE'LL CONTINUE THAT COMMUNICATION AS WE GET THIS PROJECT MOVING.

AS OUR WORK IS COMPLETED AND WE'LL HAVE A PROJECT MANAGER ON SITE THAT WILL BE ABLE TO WORK WITH SCOTT TREADWAY TO MAKE SURE THIS GETS COMPLETED AS FAST AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT SACRIFICING ANY QUALITY OF THE FINAL PRODUCT THERE.

WE'VE HAD FINAL PRICING AND SAVINGS PRESENTED TO THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT, WHICH HAS BEEN PRESENTED TO THE REST OF THE CITY FOR THIS PROGRAM. AND ONE THING I WILL CLARIFY, I KNOW DAN MENTIONED IT EARLIER, WAS THE PRICING.

IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENT WAY OF GOING ABOUT PROCURING ITEMS. AS MR. LINDSEY POINTED OUT.

I WILL SAY, THERE IS NO CHANGE ORDERS IN THESE TYPES OF PROGRAMS. SO BASED ON THE DESIGN, WE DO ALL THAT DESIGN WORK ON THE FRONT END TO MAKE SURE WE'RE NOT COMING BACK TO THE CITY WITH A CHANGE ORDER.

DAN MENTIONING THE SMALL LIKELIHOOD OF NEEDING TO USE THE CONTINGENCY THAT YOU PUT A PART OF THAT ORDINANCE TONIGHT, NOW THAT'S NOT TO SAY IF YOU WANT TO ADD SOMETHING TO THE SCOPE OR SAY, HEY, CAN YOU DO THIS WORK AS WELL? THAT'S DIFFERENT. THAT'S SOMETHING WE COULD ADD AND THE CONTINGENCY WOULD TAKE INTO AFFECT THERE.

THIS ORDINANCE, 71702 WAS PUT IN PLACE TO MINIMIZE THE RISK TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AS FAR AS THE FLUCTUATIONS WITH A PROJECT LIKE THIS THAT MAY COME ABOUT, WHICH IS I'M SURE WHY YOU PUT THE 10% CONTINGENCY IN THE ORDINANCES. THE CONTRACTS HAVE BEEN REVIEWED BY MR. LINDSEY. IF THERE ARE OTHER CHANGES HE WOULD LIKE, WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO DISCUSS THOSE.

I THINK WE'RE READY FOR ACTION AS FAR AS THAT'S CONCERNED TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND AS FAR AS HOW WE GOT HERE. NOW -- YES, GO AHEAD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES ANYBODY HAVE QUESTIONS? MS. DOROTHY, WERE YOU GOING TO ASK A QUESTION?

>> R. DOROTHY: I ALWAYS DO, MR. WHITED DID COVER MY USUAL QUESTIONS. I DID WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE ENERGY SAVINGS, WHAT WE HAVE HAD AND WHAT WE'RE HAVING FOR THE PHASE ONE AND WHAT WE EXPECT FOR PHASE TWO.

AND WHO IS WATCHING THOSEB INS. I WOULD LIKE TO GET MORE PEOPLE EXCITED ABOUT ITMENT. I THINK IT'S EXCITED.

HOW LONG THE CONTRACT IS. HOPEFULLYTHE SYSTEMS LAST A LONG TIME AND WE'LL HAVE ENERGY SAVINGS FOR A LONG TIME.

BUT REMIND ME HOW LONG THE CONTRACT IS AND SAVINGS?

>> I CAN DETAIL THE ENERGY SAVINGS FROM PHASE ONE.

I BELIEVE THE ENERGY SAVINGS CONTRACT I BELIEVE IS THREE OR FIVE YEARS WITH THE GUARANTEE WITH THE IDEA OF YOU HAVE THE ENERGY SAVINGS GUARANTEED FOR THAT AMOUNT OF TIME, WHICH IS THE INANCIAL GUARANTEE FROM ABM.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND THE CONTRACT, BY ALL MEANS, THE CITY ASK DO THAT. -- CAN DO THAT AS A RISK MITIGATOR. ONCE YOU HAVE THREE TO FIVE YEARS OF ENERGY SAVINGS, YOU KNOW IT'S GOING TO BE THERE IN THE FOLLOWING YEARS. THE CITY NOT WANTING TO PAY ABM

[00:45:03]

WHEN YOU KNOW THE ENERGY SAVE -- SAVINGS ARE PRESENT.

COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY, WE DID A POST INSTALL REPORT, WHICH WE WERE REALLY EXPUCOULD -- EXPEDITING THE POLICE STATION REPORT. YOU ARE EXCEEDING THE ENERGY SAVINGS BY ABOUT $7,000 ANNUALLY.

AND THAT'S OVER WHAT ABM GUARANTEED, WHICH IS FANTASTIC.

AND WE DO THAT POST INSTALL REPORT BEFORE THE FIRST YEAR OF MEASUREMENT AND VERIFICATION TAKES PLACE.

REASON BEING THERE IS WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ENERGY SAVINGS ARE GOING TO TAKE PLACE. THAT'S KIND OF A PROJECTED AMOUNT. BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT'S GOING TO TAKE PLACE FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS.

ONE, WE'RE FINANCIALLY ON THE THE HOOK IF THE SAVINGS AROUND PRESENT. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE CORRECT IT ON THE FRONT END AND WE CAN MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS OPERATING AS EFFICIENTLY AS DESIGNED.

EVERYTHING IS LOOKING GOOD THERE.

WE COME BACK YEAR OVER YEAR PRODUCE MEASUREMENT AND VERIFICATION REPORT OF THOSE ENERGY SAVINGS.

AND WE'D BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO GO IN DETAIL FRONT OF COUNCIL OR JUST PROVIDE THE DOCUMENT, WHATEVER THE CITY FEELS IS NECESSARY. BUT VERY POSITIVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE HAVE A VERY HEFTY AGENDA TONIGHT.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> R. DOROTHY: I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE REPORTS SO WE COULD AT A MINIMUM PUT THEM ON OUR WEBSITE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR GIVING THE UPDATE ON WHAT HAS HAPPENED.

I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE USERS OF THE BUILDINGS.

A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED WITH ENERGY SAVINGS THEY REDUCE THE COMFORT OF THE BUILDING.

THE USERS OF THE BUILDINGS WE'VE DONE, WAS THAT HE OMMUNITY CENTER? ARE PEOPLE HAPPY THERE?

>> I DO NOT -- I HAVE CONTACT WITH DARREN AND RANDY QUITE A BIT. I THINK THE PEOPLE THERE ARE HAPPY. IF DARREN WANT TO COMMENT, I THINK HE MAY BE ON. I CAN'T SEE THE LIST.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE CAN HAVE MR. HURLEY RESPOND TO THAT AFTER. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE ON THIS PARTICULAR ORDINANCE? QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? THANK YOU, EVERYBODY FOR THE PRESENTATIONS.

THEY WERE WONDERFUL. AND GAVE US A VERY COMPLETE OVERVIEW OF THE SERVICES THAT WILL BE COMING ONCE APPROVED.

>> R. DOROTHY: I THINK WE'RE STILL TALKING ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE POLICE STATION. HE ASKED FOR COMMENTS AND WE'RE GOING TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AT THE POLICE

STATION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THEY WERE JUST MENTIONING THE COMPLETE OVERHAUL OF THE VAC AND LIGHTING AND BUILDING ENVELOPE.

>> YES. I CAN BE QUICK HERE ON THESE LAST COUPLE OF SLIDES. I DID SEE OU HAD A LEDGY AGENDA. AS FAR AS THE HVAC SYSTEM IS CONCERNED, ORIGINALLY WE WERE LOOKING AT A REPLACEMENT OF THE SPLIT SYSTEMS. WHAT I CAN TELL YOU THE CITY ADMINISTRATION HAS GONE INTO A LOT OF DIFFERENT MEASURES TO MAKE SURE THIS IS A SAFE ENVIRONMENT.

YOU HAVE THE 12 SPLIT SYSTEMS REPLACED WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY UNITS, A DEDICATED OUTDOOR UNIT. WHICH REQUIRES NEW DUCT WORK, REINFORCEMENT ON THE ROOF. YOU CAN SEE A PICTURE ON THE ROOF ON THE PRESENTATION. THOSE EXHAUST FANS YOU WILL HAVE NEW ONES ON THERE. ADDITIONALLY NEW REFRIGERANT LINES AND NEW ELECTRICAL AND GAS LINES AS WELL TO THE DEDICATED OUTDOOR AIR UNIT. IT REALLY IS A COMPLETE OVERHAUL BUT IT WILL SET UP A GREAT SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR THAT BUILDING.

L.E.D. LIGHTING UPGRADES WILL ADD NICE ESTHETIC.

A LOT LONGER BURN HOURS TON THE L.E.D.'S.

BASED ON RUN TIMES IN SOME AREAS, YOU WILL HAVE 25 YEARS OF LIFE EXPECTANCY BASED ON THE BURN HOURS ON THE MANUFACTURE'S SPECKS THERE. AND THEN THE BUILDING ENVELOPE, WHICH IS THIS DISCOLORED PICTURE ON THE LEFT.

THAT'S A THERMAL IMAGE TO SEE WHERE SOME INEFFICIENCIES OF BUILDING ENVELOPE ARE IN THE BUILDING.

JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA, THERE IS OVER 700 LINEAR FEET OF JUST WINDOWS THAT ARE GOING TO BE TIGHTENED UP AS FAR AS BUILDING ENVELOPE ARE CONCERNED. AND THERE IS A LOT OF OTHER AREAS LIKE DOORS AND WHERE PIPES ARE ENTERING THE BUILDING.

EVERYTHING WILL BE SEALED UP, IT WILL HELP FROM AN ENERGY

[00:50:01]

STANDPOINT AND REGULATING THE AIR COMING INTO THE BUILDING TO KEEP EVERYTHING SAFE AND DRY. THE LAST SLIDE I'LL SHARE WITH YOU IS OR I SHOULD SAY THE SECOND TO LAST IS A BREAKDOWN OF THE PROJECT INVESTMENT, TOTAL SAVINGS OVER 20 YEARS, LISTED IN THE ORDINANCE NOW IT'S AMENDED, A 20-YEAR LIFE EXPECTANCIES, INCLUDES THE LIGHTING, HVAC, BUILDING ENVELOPE, SOME ITEMS ARE OVER 20 YEARS IN SOME CASES. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF VARIABLES AS FAR AS OTHER CONTRACTORS INVOLVED IN SOME OF THE IMPROVEMENTS. WE'RE LOOKING AT THREE TO FIVE MONTHS AS FAR AS INSTALLATION IS CONCERNED.

AND REALLY, IT'S A GREAT PROGRAM AS FAR AS THE POLICE STATION IS CONCERNED FOR WORTHINGTON. THE ENERGY AND OPERATIONAL SAVINGS PAY FOR THE PROGRAM. THE ENERGY SAVINGS ARE GUARANTEED BY ABM FINANCIALLY. IT ADDRESSED ALL THOSE MECHANICAL NEEDS. WE'LL BE THERE AS FAR AS MAINTAINING THE EQUIPMENT. WE HOLD THE PREVENTIVE MANIPULATES. IT'S GOING TO MEET MULTIPLE PRIORITIES FOR THE CITY. SO WITH THAT, I'LL LEAVE YOU WITH QUESTIONS AND WE'LL GIVE YOU ANSWERS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS WE HAVE? WE HAVE A LONG AGENDA TONIGHT. HEARING NONE, MS. THRESS, COULD YOU PLEASE ROLE ON ORDINANCE 20-22020.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: YES. >> R. DOROTHY: YES.

>> D. SMITH: YES. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: YES.

>> P. BUCHER: YES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES.

ORDINANCE 20-2020 HAS PASSED. MOVING ONTO --

>> D. KAY THRESS: MR. SHERMAN IS >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. SHE

[5.A. Community Visioning Update Executive Summary: Community Visioning Committee Chair Joe Sherman will provide an update on the work of the committee on the Community Visioning initiative.]

RMAN, WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME. WE HAVE A WILD MEETING GOING TONIGHT. PLEASE JOIN US.

AND GIVE US YOUR PRESENTATION. >> I WILL.

I THANK YOU. I'M SORRY WE JUST HAD THE CONNECTIVITY SSUE. I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY AS ALWAYS. CAN EVERYBODY HEAR ME OKAY?

>> D. ROBINSON: YES. >> I'LL START THE LAST UPDATE ON THE 18TH OF MAY. WE HAVE HAD ONE MEETING SINCE THEN ON 68/. OUR 5/27 MEETING REPLACED BY THE SORE SESSION. I THOUGHT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO AS WE'RE ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY IS TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT THE VISION GOALS ARE TO BE.

AND I THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT AS WE START TO LOOK INTO WHERE WE'VE GONE WITH THE SOURCE SESSIONS SO FAR.

OUR GOALS WERE SIMPLY DISCOVER THE FUTURE THE COMMUNITY WANTS BY GIVING RESIDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS IDEAS, OPINIONS AND VALUES, TO CREATE A WELL GROUNDED ARTICULATION OF THE COMMUNITY'S ASPIRATION FOR THE FUTURE.

RESIDENTS A PLATFORM TO DISCUSS WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE OUR COMMUNITY TO LOOK AND FEEL LIKE IN 10 TO 20 YEARS.

LASTLY, WHAT IS VISIONING. TO DEFINE, VISIONING IS THE PROCESS OF COLLABORATIVELY DEVELOPING CONSENSUS AR AROUND E DESIRED FUTURE FOR THE COMMUNITY TO SET GOALS AND SOLVE PROBLEMS. THE REASON I SET IT UP IS OUR FIRST SOURCE SESSION WAS JUST CONCLUDED. THE SOURCE S A PLANNING TOOL THAT WAS DEVELOPED AND BROUGHT FORTH BY MR. PODE MIRE, OUR CONSULTANT GROUP. STRENGTHS, OPPORTUNITIES, ASPIRATIONS AND RESULTS. FOUR SESSIONS WERE HELD.

WE LIMITED THESE TO 25 INDIVIDUALS.

SO WE COULD MANAGE THE INPUT. WE HAD APPROXIMATELY 72 RESIDENTS THAT DID PARTICIPATE. THE GOOD NEWS HERE IS THE GOAL WAS TO SIMPLY ADD ITEMS TO A LIST WITHOUT EVALUATION.

AND I THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT. WE ENDED UP WITH SIX PAGES OF ITEMS THAT CAME IN UNDER DIFFERENT THINGS.

FOR EXAMPLE, UNDER STRENGTHS, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS TALKED ABOUT WAS A VIBRANT DOWNTOWN.

THE EVENTS WERE TALKED ABOUT IN TERMS OF THE FARMERS MARKET.

IT'S A GREAT PLACE FOR KIDS. THINGS WE ALL KNOW AND APPRECIATE. UNDER THE OPPORTUNITIES, I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING TO POINT OUT THE DIVERSITY WAS TALKED ABOUT. THAT WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO FOSTER TO GROW AND ATTRACT AND EMBRACE RACIAL DIVERSITY IS ONE OF THE THINGS MENTIONED. FROM A DOWNTOWN PERSPECTIVE, WORTHINGTON VACANT SPACE WAS BROUGHT UP AND NEED TO CONNECT OLD WORTHINGTON TO SURROUNDING AREAS SUCH AS THE MALL, SOUTH

[00:55:03]

WORTHINGTON, ET CETERA. IN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AREA, THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT FOCUSING THE UPGRADED EMPTY OFFICE SPACES TO IMPROVE AND REPURPOSE AND FILL THE DEVELOPING NEW OFFICE -- BEFORE DEVELOPING NEW OFFICE SPACES.

THERE IS AN OVERRELIANCE ON WHAT HAS BEEN DONE ISTORICALLY, RATHER THAN LOOKING FORWARD WAS ONE OF THE ITEMS THEY BROUGHT UP. AND TO BUILD A VISION AND PLAN FOR PROJECTED POPULATION GROWTH IN THE DEMOGRAPHIC CHANGE TO BECOME A SMART CITY AND PLAN FOR AGES 8 TO 80.

WHICH I THOUGHT WAS AN INTERESTING WAY TO LOOK AT ITT.

FROM AN ASPIRATION STANDPOINT, WORTHINGTON SHOULD REFLECT THE DIVERSITY WITHIN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM TODAY.

IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE PRESERVE THE HISTORIC DOWNTOWN.

BEING OPEN TO ENHANCEMENTS SO FOCAL POINTS LIKE THE WORTHINGTON INN DON'T STAY VACANT.

WE NEED TO FILL AND RENOVATE EMPTY BUILDINGS AND MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT. AND UNDERSTAND THE CORE VALUES WE'RE ADOPTED WHILE APPLYING A LENS FOR FUTURE INNOVATIONS.

DON'T BE AFRAID OF DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT WAS ONE OF THE COMMENT SAID -- OMMENTS. I'LL CONCLUDE BECAUSE OF THE LENGTH OF WHAT'S GOING ON THIS EVENING.

THERE WAS A COUPLE OF POINTS HERE THAT I THOUGHT WERE QUITE APROPOS. IT SAID, PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION. AND YOU CAN'T IMPROVE WHAT YOU DON'T MEASURE. THE THING I TOOK AWAY FROM THE SOURCE SESSIONS WAS THE COMMUNITY WAS COMPLETELY ENGAGED. IT WAS VIRTUAL.

IT GOT A LITTLE TRICKY. BUT WE WORKED THROUGH IT WITH THE COMMUNITY. AND I LIKE I SAY, WE HAVE SIX PAGES OF RESULTS THAT WILL BE FORTHCOMING IN THE REPORT.

PART OF WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT ON THE 18TH WAS THE COMMUNICATIONS PLAN. AND WHAT HAVE WE DONE.

WE DID GET A POST CARD OUT TO THE CITY.

I THINK YOU MAY HAVE RECEIVED THIS IN THE MAIL.

THE EXCITING THING ABOUT THIS LITTLE GUY WAS THE FACT THE QR CODES IF YOU TAKE THEM AT THE TOP YOU END UP GOING TO OUR WEBSITE. IF YOU TAKE THE QR CODE HERE, YOU END UP GOING TO THE FOCUS GROUPS AND ABLE TO SIGN UP THERE. AND THEN IN THE ACK, BEGIN, IT TAKES YOU TO THE WEDNESDAY -- WEBSITE.

ONE CHALLENGE WE HAD WAS TO ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY.

I CAN THIS FIRST -- I THINK THIS FIRST MAILER IS GOING TO BE INTERESTED HOW WELL WE DO. WE'LL HAVE A FOLLOW-UP MAILER IN AUGUST. FROM THERE, WE DID -- WE HAVE OUR PUBLIC SURVEY NOW ONLINE THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUT IN AUGUST. WE PUSHED IT AHEAD TO MAKE SURE WE GET AS MUCH OF THE COMMUNITY ENGAGED AS WE POSSIBLY CAN.

I DID HAVE A DISCUSSION WITH A COUPLE OF COUNCILMEMBERS ABOUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THE PARTICIPATION THAT WAY.

IS IT FOR THE RESIDENTS OR FOR THE SCHOOL DISTRICT? WHAT WE DECIDED TO DO TO CAPTURE THIS, BECAUSE THE COMMITTEE FELT IT WAS MOST IMPORTANT TO DO THE ENGAGEMENT VIA RESIDENTS.

WE CAN'T IGNORE THE SCHOOL SYSTEM.

WE HAVE A FACEBOOK AD THAT'S BEEN CHANGED TO INCLUDE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT BOUNDARIES. PREVIOUSLY JUST ADVERTISING THIS TO THE WORTHINGTON RESIDENTS. WE'RE ASKING THEM TO NOW COMPLETE THE SURVEY. PAULSON CAR, ONE OF OUR COMMITTEE MEMBERS MET WITH THE SCHOOLS.

AND THEY ARE GOING TO PUT THE VISIONING INFORMATION AND FOCUS GROUP INFORMATION AS WELL AS THE SURVEY LINK AND PUSH IT OUT THROUGH THEIR CHANNELS. AND THEN, WE ALSO HAVE ONE OF OUR FOCUS GROUPS IS THE BUSINESS MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY.

WE'RE ASKING THEM TO ALSO FORWARD ALL OF THIS TO THEIR EMPLOYEES. WE'RE DOING THE BEST WE CAN IN THIS VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT TO A BROADER BASE OTHER THAN THE 14,461 OF US THAT LIVE IN THE CITY DISTRICT.

YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THEM AROUND TOWN.

THE ART SIGN AND VILLAGE GREEN SIGNS ARE UP.

WE HAVE THAT PIECE DONE. ANNE BROWN DID HER BEAUTIFUL WORK WITH THE PRESS RELEASE, THAT TALKS ABOUT THE WEBSITE REVIEW AND SURVEY. PAULSON AND CAR MET WITH THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. AND WITH THAT, THEY HAVE A GROUP LIST OF 1300 PEOPLE. AND WE WERE ABLE TO PUSH ALL OF

[01:00:01]

THIS INFORMATION I'VE JUST TALKED TO YOU ABOUT TO THE CHAMBER MEMBERSHIP. THE NEXT BIG ENGAGEMENT WE HAVE COMING IS WITH THE FOCUS GROUPS. THE FOCUS GROUPS, UNLIKE THE SORE, ARE GOING TO BE INTERACTIVE.

THEY WILL BE SEVEN OR EIGHT TOPICS THAT WILL BE DISCUSSED.

WE'VE BROKEN THIS INTO FOUR GROUPS.

THE RESIDENTS BORN IN 1965 AND AFTER.

THE RESIDENTS BORN IN 64 AND BEFORE.

BUSINESS OWNERS AND THE CIVIC GROUPS, NONPROFITS, ET CETERA.

THE ENCOURAGING THING WE LIMITED TO 35 BECAUSE WE WANT TO MANAGE THE ABILITY TO HAVE GOOD AND OPEN COMMUNICATION.

THE 64 AND OVER AND 65 AND UNDER FILLED UP QUICKLY.

WE'VE GONE TO A SECOND SESSION FOR BOTH OF THOSE.

I THINK OUR COMMUNITY IS ENGAGED.

I THINK THE FOCUS GROUPS, WHICH BEGAN ON THE 16TH, ARE GOING TO PROVIDE, AGAIN, VERY GOOD INFORMATION.

I DID TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO REACH OUT TO DAVID MCCORKLE BECAUSE I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE GET THE BUSINESS OWNERS ENGAGED.

I THINK AS OF TWO NIGHTS AGO, WE HAD SEVEN BUSINESSES SIGNED UP AND WE WANT TO GET THE 35 SLOTS FILLED.

WITH DAVID'S HELP AND OTHERS, I THINK WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO THAT. WE REACHED OUT TO THE NONPROFITS. AND I THINK WE'RE GOING TO BE IN GOOD STEAD THERE. SO IN CONCLUSION, I FEEL REALLY GOOD THE VISION WORTHINGTON WEBSITE IS ROBUST AND IT'S UP TO DATE. WE'RE GETTING AN AWFUL LOT OF HITS, WHICH HAS BEEN ENCOURAGES TO SEE.

AS I JUST SAID, THE FOCUS GROUPS ARE OUR NEXT TARGETS.

THE CITY HAS BEEN GREAT WITH PUB LUSIS PUBLICIZING THE DATES.

WE HAVE 25 DIFFERENT PEOPLE WE'RE REACHING OUT TO FILL THAT VW -- VC POSITION. WE DID DO AN EXIT INTERVIEW F FM THE SORE SURVEY. AND IT WAS INTERESTING TO ME BECAUSE 50% OF THE PARTICIPANTS HEARD ABOUT SORE FROM A PERSONAL EMAIL. 31% CAME FROM THE CITY NEWSLETTER. 25% FROM THE FACEBOOK.

SO TO ME, IT'S INTERESTING THAT IT'S GETTING DOWN TO WHO DID YOU TALK TO? WHO DID YOU SEND THE NOTE TO THAT'S REALLY MAKING THIS THING HAPPEN FOR US ALL.

I'LL JUST CONCLUDES BY I WROTE THIS DOWN AND THOUGHT, YOU KNOW, AS A COMMUNITY, AND MYSELF PERSONALLY, I HAD NO IDEA OF WHAT 2020 WAS GOING TO BE LIKE. I DON'T THINK ANYONE COULD HAVE DESCRIBED THIS TRAGEDY OF OUR TIMES.

SO WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO BUT TO SEEK AND MAKE THINGS BETTER? SO WHAT I'VE TOLD THE COMMITTEE, WE HAVE TO START WHERE WE ARE.

AND YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT YOU CAN RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

AND AS WAS STATED IN THE VISION WORTHINGTON GOALS, OUR GOAL HERE SIMPLY IS TO BUILD A GREAT SENSE OF TRUST AND BELONGING WITH THE WORTHINGTON RESIDENTS IN THE FUTURE OF OUR CITY.

AND I GOT TO SAY, I THINK WE'RE ON A REALLY STRONG PATH AT THIS POINT IN TIME. SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. GENE, THANK YOU FOR PLUGGING ME IN. I ASK NOW IF THERE ARE

QUESTIONS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES

ANYBODY HAVE A QUESTION? >> R. DOROTHY: YES, HOW MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE WE'RE REACHING AND ANY DEMOGRAPHICS AND TALK A BIT ABOUT THE DEMOGRAPHICS FOR THE FOCUS GROUPS?

>> COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY, THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

LET ME PUT THAT TOGETHER IN AN EMAIL AND SEND IT TO THE GROUP.

HOW IS THAT? >> R. DOROTHY: TERRIFIC.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYBODY ELSE HAVE QUESTIONS? MR. ROBINSON?

>> D. ROBINSON: MR. SHERMAN, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I CAN TELL YOU ARE SPENDING AN IMMENSE AMOUNT OF TIME AND ENERGY ON THE PROJECT. THANK YOU FOR THAT.

COULD YOU PLEASE STATE AT THIS POINT IN THE PROCESS BOUT THE DELIVERABLES THAT YOU ILL BE BRINGING AT THE END OF THE PROCESS, AND SPECIFICALLY, I THINK I HEARD YOU MENTION THAT YOU ARE WORKING ON FORMING OR IDENTIFYING A CONSENSUS WITHIN THE COMMUNITY. IS THAT ONE OF YOUR OBJECTIVES TOWARD THE FINAL REPORT? OR WILL YOU BE PERHAPS ARTICULATING MULTIPLE STRANDS OF THOUGHT FOR THE CITY? AND THEN RELATEDLY, COULD YOU SPEAK HOW YOU ARE GOING TO BE INTERPRETING OR UNDERSTANDING THE SORE AND OCUS GROUP MEETING

[01:05:02]

INFORMATION? BECAUSE THESE ARE SELF-SELECTING GROUP AND HOW WILL THAT INFORM YOUR NDERSTANDING OF THE

COMMUNITY AT-LARGE? >> OKAY.

I WILL DO MY BEST HERE. WHAT WE'RE GOING TO BE PREPARING IS NOT JUST SINGLE VISION. I THINK WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SEE IS THERE IS GOING TO BE MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO COME BACK WITH MULTIPLE THREADS, IF YOU WILL.

AS WE SAW FROM THE SORE, THERE ARE GOING TO BE SEVERAL THREADS THAT WILL COME TOGETHER THAT I THINK WILL START TO FORM THOSE VISIONS FOR US TO THEN PRESENT BACK TO COUNCIL.

I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING HERE THOUGH WITH THE VISIONING COMMITTEE IS WE ARE JUST THE PROCESS.

VISIONING IS JUST A PROCESS. AND THAT'S IT.

WE HAD A LIST, NOT ANYTHING THAT WE PUT TOGETHER.

SO WHATEVER COMES OUT OF THIS WILL BE PRESENTED BACK TO COUNCIL IN THAT VEIN. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE COUNCILMEMBER ROBINSON, DID THAT ANSWER THE FIRST QUESTION?

>> D. ROBINSON: IT DOES. THANK YOU.

>> OKAY. >> D. ROBINSON: HEAR ABOUT MULTIPLE VIEWPOINTS AND THINKINS OBVIOUSLY BETTER THAN ME, A LOT OF DIVERSE OPINIONS AND BELIEFS GOAL OR CONSENSUS AND STIFLING VIEWPOINTS AND OPPRESSING PEOPLE

FROM SPEAKING THEIR MIND. >> YOUR SECOND QUESTION?

>> D. ROBINSON: WAS HOW YOU WILL BE UNDERSTANDING AND MAYBE PRESENTING AND INTERPRETING THE INFORMATION FROM FOCUS GROUPS MEETINGS. I GUESS I'M HOPING THEY NOT BE OPEN TO NECESSARILY REPRESENTING A CROSS SECTION OF THE COMMUNITY. AS YOU KNOW, WITH THE PLANNED ACTIVITIES GOING DOOR TO DOOR WAS AIMED AT INCREASING PARTICIPATION IS NOT POSSIBLE ANYMORE.

I THINK KEE KEEPING IN MIND THET WE'RE PROBABLY GOING TO BE ACCESSING SMALLER NUMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY OUGHT TO BE KEPT IN MIND THROUGHOUT THE EVALUATION PROCESS.

>> WE CAN'T GO DOOR TO DOOR, AND THAT WAS A MAJOR COMPONENT OF WHAT WE WERE GOING TO TRY TO DO. KEEPING WITH THE 80% CONTACT, I'M HOPEFUL THE POST CARD WILL GIVE US SOME GOOD FEEDBACK.

THE SECOND MAILER WE'LL HAVE WILL HAVE A RETURN MAIL COMING BACK TO THE COMMITTEE. AGAIN, I THINK OUR GOAL IS SIMPLY TO REPORT THE NEWS. WHATEVER COMES BACK, WE WILL PRESENT IT. I THINK POGGEMEYER IS OING TO FOLLOW THE LEAD BUT IT'S THEIR JOB TO CONSTRUCT IT.

I FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE WITH THIS.

AND IN DEFERENCE TO TIME, I'M HAPPY O PRESENT ANYTHING COMING BACK IN A WRITTEN FORMAT TO COUNCIL IF THAT WOULD BE MORE

APPROPRIATE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YEAH.

>> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU SO MUCH, MR. SHERMAN.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. SHE RMAN, WE WANT TO THANK YOU YOU AND THE WHOLE COMMITTEE FOR THE WONDERFUL WORK. I SAT IN FOR HALF OF ONE OF THE SORE MEETINGS UNTIL I HAD ANOTHER MEETING TO GO TO.

VERY INTERESTING AND WONDERFUL. I KNOW YOU WILL BRING BACK RESULTS AND UPDATES. THANK YOU YOU AND THE ENTIRE COMMITTEE FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE.

>> IT'S OUR PLEASURE AND THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK A

QUESTION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES,

MS. KOWALCZYK. >> B. KOWALCZYK: FIRST OF ALL, MR. SHERMAN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU CONTINUE TO PIVOT AND FIGURE OUT WAYS TO GET PEOPLE ENGAGED AND I APPRECIATE IT. I'VE GOTTEN GREAT FEEDBACK ON THE SORE PROCESS. SURPRISINGLY GOOD FEEDBACK, CONSIDERING IT WAS CLUNKY. I SAT ON THE FIRST ONE, THAT WAS ROUGH. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU KIND OF PICKED UP YOUR STRIDE ON IT. AND I AVE TO SAY, I WAS ONE OF THE FOLKS THAT REACHED OUT TO YOU ABOUT THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

I HAD PEOPLE ASK ME IF THEY COULD PARTICIPATE.

AND I DO THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO HEAR THEIR VOICES.

AND APPRECIATE YOUR RESPONSE THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS FOR PEOPLE TO PARTICIPATE. SO PARTICIPATING THROUGH THE WEBSITE AND SURVEY AND THINGS LIKE THAT ARE PROBABLY MOST APPROPRIATE FOR THE BROADER GROUP.

YOU MENTIONED TALKING TO THE SCHOOL.

MY QUESTION IS, IS THERE GOING TO BE AN EFFORT TO PERHAPS REACH OUT TO THE KIDS IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT?

>> YES. BRIEFLY, I HAVE GOT JOHN CONROD IS WORKING ON A VISION -- CON RAD, VISION PROGRAM, REACHING OUT TO DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

AND THEY ARE PUTTING TOGETHER A VISIONING EFFORT.

[01:10:02]

AND WHAT THESE COMMUNITIES ARE DOING.

JOHN IS GOING TO BRING THAT TO US, AS THE COMMITTEE, AND THEY WILL THEN MAKE THAT PRESENTATION TO US.

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO ASK THEM TO DO THEN IS TO TAKE OUR VISION AND TAKE IT TO THEM AND TWO OF THEIR FRIENDS TO GO BACK AND TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT. AND THEN PERHAPS TAKE THE SURVEY AS WELL. SO THAT'S HOW WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO GET OUR ARMS AROUND THE STUDENTS.

BECAUSE TO ME, IT'S SUCH A VITALLY IMPORTANT PART OF THIS PROCESS. SO FILM AT 11:00.

WE'LL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT GOESES.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: GREAT. I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING ABOUT

IT. >> MY PLEASURE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER COMMENTS? IF NOT, WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON. AGAIN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, MR. SHERMAN. AND THANK YOU THE COMMITTEE FOR

ALL OF US. >> WE'LL DO.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

WE ARE ONLY AT THE BEGINNING OF PAGE TWO OF A FIVE-PAGE AGENDA.

I'M GOING TO ASK PEOPLE TO BE VERY FOCUSED ON YOUR QUESTIONS. AND ASK STAFF TO BE GIVE US CONCISE OF DESCRIPTIONS IN ORDER FOR US TO GET THROUGH THE MEETING BEFORE 11:00 TONIGHT. MOVING ONTO ORDINANCE 21-2020.

FOR LAUNCH? >> M. GREESON: I WOULD ASK MR. WHITED OR MR. BARTTER IF THEY HAVE ADDITIONAL ITEMS?

>> I'VE HIT SO MANY HURDLES. THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL COSTS FOR MONITORING SOME OF THE WORK FROM AN ENVIRONMENTAL PERSPECTIVE. THERE WILL BE I'M SURE OTHER ISSUES RELATED TO CHALLENGES THAT ARE CONTINUAL PART OF THIS PROCESS. WE'RE THROUGH THE MAJOR PART OF THE PAIN AND BEING ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH SOME FUN STUFF.

NO PROMISE. >> P. BUCHER: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IT'S GOING TO BE AN EXCITING PROJECT.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? IF NOT, MS. THRESS, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL ON THIS ORDINANCE?

>> R. DOROTHY: YES. >> D. SMITH: YES.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: YES. >> P. BUCHER: YES.

>> D. ROBINSON: YES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES.

ORDINANCE NUMBER 21-2020 HAS PASSED.

[7.D. Ordinance No. 22-2020 Adoption of City Code Replacement Pages]

ORDINANCE 22-202020. AN ORDINANCE TO REVISE THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES BY ADOPTING CURRENT REPLACEMENT PAGES.

THE LIST IS IN YOUR COUNCIL PACKETS.

ANYTHING ELSE, MR. GREESON TO DISCUSS ON THIS?

IT'S ROUTINE. >> M. GREESON: I THINK MS. THRESS OR MR. LINDSEY WOULD BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE. LARGELY INCORPORATES THE ORDINANCES YOU PASSED AS WELL AS CHANGES IN STATE LAW REQUIRED TO

[01:15:05]

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: YES. >> P. BUCHER: YES.

>> D. ROBINSON: YES. >> B. KOWALCZYK: YES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES. ORDINANCE 22-2020 HAS PASSED.

THE AGENDA IS INTERESTING BECAUSE IT SAYS THE JOINT

[7.E. Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) - Sharon Township]

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT, IT DOES NOT HAVE AN ORDINANCE NUMBER OR ANYTHING RELATED TO IT.

>> MR. LINDSEY: FOR PURPOSES OF THIS AGENDA ITEM, THIS IS A PUBLIC HEARING REQUIRED BY STATUTE.

COUNCIL IS NOT BEING ASKED TO TAKE ANY ACTION ON ANY RESOLUTION THIS EVENING. BUT THE STATUTE REQUIRES US TO PROVIDE A 30-DAY NOTICE OF A PUBLIC HEARING.

THE ACTUAL ACTION WE'RE ANTICIPATING WOULD BE THE FIRST MEETING IN JULY WHERE YOU WILL HAVE A RESOLUTION TO APPROVE THE ACTUAL CONTRACT. MR. MCCORKLE DID PROVIDE IN THE COUNCIL PACKETS ADDITIONAL INFORMATION KNOWING THAT JEDD IS NOT SOMETHING THAT COUNCIL REGULARLY DOES.

IT DOES A GOOD JOB OVERVIEWING. THE PURPOSE IS A STATUTORY HEARING SO THE APPROPRIATE ACTION WOULD SIMPLY BE TO ASK MS. THRESS WHETHER OR NOT THERE IS ANY MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC WISHING TO EXPRESS COMMENT ON THIS ITEM FOR THE STATUTORY

PUBLIC HEARING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. THD

THE CITY REGARDING THIS ISSUE? >> D. KAY THRESS: I HAVE

RECEIVED NO COMMENTS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

THANK YOU. IS THERE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION THAT NEEDS TO BE PROVIDED AT THIS TIME TO THE COUNCILMEMBERS OR DO COUNCILMEMBERS HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS? IT'S A PRETTY INTERESTING PROJECT.

>> M. GREESON: WE WOULD BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND ALSO WAIT TO GIVE A PRESENTATION WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO CONSIDER VOTING. WHATEVER YOUR PREFERENCE IS.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: YOU WILL BY DOING, IF WE DON'T DO IT TONIGHT, YOU WILL O A PRESENTATION, OVERVIEW OF WHAT IT IS AND WE CAN ASK QUESTIONS AND ENGAGE DURING THAT PERIOD?

>> M. GREESON: YES. SURE.

IF THERE IS ANY QUESTIONS WE NEED TO RESEARCH OR MAYBE REQUIRE SOME TIME, I MEAN, TONIGHT WOULD BE THE NIGHT TO

GIVE THEM TO US. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. GRE SOMEBODY GIVE A SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT.

A SHORT BROAD PAINT BRUSH OVERVIEW SO PEOPLE HAVE AN

UNDERSTANDING WHAT IT IS. >> M. GREESON: SURE.

MR. MCCORKLE IS PREPARED FOR THAT.

>> I'LL DO IT QUICKLY. THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

SO THIS IS A JEDD BETWEEN SHARON TOWNSHIP AND WORTHINGTON.

JOINT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT.

SO THEY ARE, IT'S A CONTRACT BETWEEN TWO PARTIES.

AND THE IDEA IS THAT SHARON TOWNSHIP WILL BE ABLE TO LEVERAGE OUR AUTHORITY TO IMPLEMENT AN INCOME TAX ON THE BUSINESSES WITHIN A CERTAIN DISTRICT.

I'LL SKIP THROUGH THIS. BUT THE IDEA IS THAT THERE WILL BE A CONTRACT, A MAP AND DEVELOPMENT PLAN.

THOSE WERE ALL ATTACHED TO YOUR AGENDA THIS EVENING.

TONIGHT, IS THE HEARING AT WHICH POINT WE WILL MOVE FORWARD AND JULY 6TH MEETING.N AT THE- HERE IS THE SPECIFICS FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT SUMMARIZED SO YOU DON'T AVE TO READ THROUGH THE 40-PAGE CONTRACT. IT'S A 50-YEAR TERM.

THE CITYWIDE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE FIRE AND EMS. WE HAD SISTER THE INCOME TAX COLLECTION, ADMINISTRATOR -- LOCATED IN THE DISTRICT. THE TOWNSHIP WOULD PROVIDE POLICE, ROAD MAINTENANCE, CODE ENFORCEMENT, AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BOARD MEETING ACCOMMODATIONS AND THE SUPPORT.

HERE'S THE INTERESTING PIECE. AND WHAT MAKES OR I GUESS, THE SPECIFICS OF OUR CONTRACT IS THE INCOME TAX REVENUE BREAKDOWN IN THE SHARING MODEL. WE HAVE AN 80/20 SPLIT.

SHARON TOWNSHIP WOULD RECEIVE 80%.

THE CITYWIDE RECEIVE 20%. THE IDEA THE CITY WOULD BE RECEIVING 20% ESSENTIALLY FOR OUR WILLINGNESS TO SUPPORT THE TOWNSHIPS PUTTING THIS INCOME TAX IN PLACE.

THE TWO PIECES I WOULD HIGHLIGHT ARE THERE ARE A 2% FEE THAT WILL COME OFF THE TOP TO MAINTAIN THE DISTRICT.

AND THEN THE 3% REIMBURSE THE CITY FOR INCOME TAX COLLECTIONS.

[01:20:05]

MR. BARTTER IS EXCITED, HE'LL BE THE ADMINISTRATOR OF ALL INCOME TAX COLLECTIONS. AS A RESULT OF THAT, WE ARE STIPULATING IN THE CONTRACT THAT WE WOULD RECEIVE AT LEAST THE 3% FEE THAT RITA CHARGES OFF THE TOP TO REIMBURSE OURSELVES.

AND THEN YOU CAN SEE THERE, THE BOTTOM, THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, THERE ARE, IT'S A FIVE-MEMBER BOARD.

THE CITY WILL NOMINATE TWO. THE TOWNSHIP WILL NOMINATE TWO.

AND THEN THE FOUR WILL DECIDE ON A FIFTH DIRECTOR.

HERE'S THE AREA. WORTHINGTON HILLS.

YOU'VE PROBABLY SEEN THE RETIREMENT CENTER THAT'S GONE UP AS WELL AS A LOT OF THE WORK ON THE HILL'S MARKET AND RUSTY BUCKET. THAT IS THE PROJECT IN QUESTION AND THOSE ARE THE PARCELS. AND HERE'S MY FINAL SLIDE, A PICTURE MID-CONSTRUCTION IF YOU HAVE NOT DRIVEN BY THE SITE.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE. I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTION. I THINK I DID THAT QUICKLY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? >> R. DOROTHY: SO WE PROVIDE SHARON TOWNSHIP FIRE SERVICE. SO WE'RE STILL GOING TO PROVIDE THE SECTION FIRE SERVICE. WE CAN NEGOTIATE OUR CONTRACT FOR THE FIRE SERVICE HOWEVER WE WANT TO?

DOES THIS CHANGE ANYTHING? >> GO AHEAD, MR. GREESON.

>> M. GREESON: I DON'T THINK IT CHANGES ANYTHING.

WE DO IN FACT NEED TO RENEGOTIATE THAT CONTRACT.

I INVITE MR. LINDSEY TO ADD IF HE DISAGREES OR HAS DIFFERENT

CONTEXT TO PROVIDE. >> MR. LINDSEY: MR. GREESON IS

CORRECT. >> R. DOROTHY: EXCELLENT.

I HAVEN'T DRIVEN BY RECENTLY BUT I HAVE RUN AND BIKED BY IT RECENTLY. I'M EXCITED ABOUT THE OLENTANGY EXTENSION THERE. THAT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF MULTIUSE LANE WE GOT BEHIND THAT UP INTO SHARON TOWNSHIP.

I APPRECIATE THAT'S DONE. AND HOPEFULLY KEEP ON GOING.

I'M EXCITED ABOUT MOVING THIS PROJECT FORWARD.

AND HOPEFULLY WE CAN HAVE THE SHARED USE AGREEMENT.

AND SHARE RESOURCES WITH OUR NEIGHBORS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WONDER. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE QUESTIONS OR

COMMENTS? >> B. KOWALCZYK: YES.

DO WE HAVE ANY NUMBERS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE FIGURES?

>> YES. THE TOTAL INCOME TAX GENERATION IS PROBABLY JUST GOING TO BE NORTH OF $2 MILLION.

80% SPLIT, HE TOWNSHIP IS DUE TO RECEIVE JUST NORTH OF $50,000 A YEAR. AND THE CITYWIDE RECEIVE 10 TO $11,000 A YEAR. SO THIS IS NOT WHAT WE CALL A LARGE ECONOMIC DRIVER FOR THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON AS MUCH AS IT IS A PARTNERSHIP WITH A NEIGHBOR.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: ARE THERE TANGIBLE BENEFITS OTHER THAN BEING GOOD NEIGHBORS AND ALL THAT?

>> I THINK IT WILL BUILD SOME GOODWILL WHEN WE DO HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE FIRE LEVY OR ONGOING INITIATIVES. WE DO PLAN TO PARTNER ON WHILE THIS CONTRACT IS NOT STIPULATE I WILL PROVIDE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT SERVICES FOR SHARON TOWNSHIP, IT DOES PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK CLOSELY WITH THEM ON MAKING SURE WE CAN HELP BUSINESSES WHETHER LOCATED JUST OUTSIDE OF OUR BOARDERS OR INSIDE OF OUR BORDERS.

WE CAN WORK TOGETHER ON ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: OKAY. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

>> P. BUCHER: TO BRIEFLY CLARIFY ONE OF THE TWO BOARD OF DIRECTORS THE CITY APPOINTS BUSINESS OWNER REPRESENTATIVE, DOES IT HAVE TO BE SOMEONE IN THAT CORRECT IN THE HILL AREA?

>> IT DOES. AND THERE ARE VERY FEW OF THEM.

WE'RE GOING TO WIND UP APPOINTING THE HILL'S MARKET OWNER OR RUSTY BUCKET OR SENIOR FACILITY PROBABLY.

I THINK THERE IS PROBABLY, THERE WILL BE A PIZZA SHOP IN THE VACANT, THE BUILDING THAT WAS TORN DOWN.

I THINK THAT WILL EVENTUALLY BECOME A PIZZA SHOP, A SHARON TOWNSHIP PEATS PIZZA SHOP. IT WILL BE ONE OF THOSE

BUSINESSES, MR. BUCHER. >> P. BUCHER: THANK YOU.

MORE INFO ON THAT WHEN THAT MOMENT COMES.

I COULDN'T COUNT MANY MORE THAN YOU LISTED.

>> YEAH, THERE ISN'T MANY MORE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

[01:25:03]

VERY GOOD QUESTIONS. ARE THERE ANYMORE QUESTIONS? I THINK IT WAS IMPORTANT TO HAVE THAT OVERVIEW.

SO THAT PEOPLE KNOW WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.

AND FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE GOING FORWARD INTO OUR NEXT MEETING.

AND ALSO FOR THE PUBLIC THAT LISTENS IN, TO AVE AN IDEA OF WHAT WE'RE ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT.

THANK YOU, MR. MCCORKLE. OKAY.

[8.A. Resolution No. 27-2020 Racism and Racial Equity]

MOVING ON. I KNOW WE'RE ALL LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS. RESOLUTION 27-2020.

RECOGNIZING THE NEGATIVE IMPACTS OF RACISM AND COMMITTING TO PROMOTE RACIAL EQUITY.

I FIRST HAVE TO INTRODUCE IT, GET IT ON THE BOARD AND MEND IT. SO EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS THE WAY WE'RE HEADED. WE LEFT OFF WITH MR. BUCHER, INTRODUCING. MS. KOWALCZYK MOVING FOR ADOPTION, SECONDED BY MR. SMITH. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY .

-- MR. BUCHER INTRODUCES IT. MS. KOWALCZYK MOVES FOR ADOPTION, MR. SMITH SECONDS. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IF THE SAME THREE ARE WILLING TO AMEND -- TO APPROVE THIS MOTION BE CARRIED FORWARD AS AMENDED IN THE PACKET THAT WAS SENT OUT FOR HIS MEETING. MR. BUCHER, DO YOU ACCEPT INTRODUCING THE AMENDING ORDINANCE WHICH WE CAN STILL

AMEND AGAIN? >> P. BUCHER: YES, I DO.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. KOW ALCZYK SECOND? MOVE FOR ADOPTION. AND MR. SMITH SECOND.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: YES. >> D. SMITH: YES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: AT THIS POINT, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. GREESON, TO DISCUSS THIS VERY IMPORTANT RESOLUTION.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WANT TO THANK MR. LINDSEY FOR ALL THE TIME AND EFFORT AND HARD WORK HE PUT IN TRYING TO BRING EVERY BODY'S IDEAS SENSITIVELY AND CAREFULLY TOGETHER IN TRYING TO WORK FORWARD SOMETHING THAT WILL

BE UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED. >> M. GREESON: I WANT TO ECHO THAT THANKS, PRESIDENT MICHAEL. BECAUSE I KNOW HE'S SPENT A LOT OF TIME TRYING TO PULL TOGETHER A LOT OF DIFFERENT VOICES.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. LINDSEY.

I BELIEVE THERE WAS SOME FINAL AMENDMENTS TO IT.

AND THEN YOU GUYS CAN DEBATE AND ACT UPON IT AS YOU DEEM APPROPRIATE. MR. LINDSEY.

>> MR. LINDSEY: THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, I APPRECIATE THE KIND WORDS.

I HINK THE REAL COMPLIMENTS NEED TO GO TO COUNCIL.

I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE WORK THAT YOU ACCOMPLISHED LAST WEEK. IT IS DIFFICULT SOMETIMES AS INDIVIDUALS FOR US TO ALWAYS HEAR THE OTHER PERSON SPEAK AND TO E ABLE TO REACH AGREEMENT ON A MESSAGE THAT, IN THIS CASE, IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. AND TO DO SO IN A WAY THAT SHOWS YOUR ABILITY TO LISTEN TO EACH OTHER, TO SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS IN AN HONEST AND OPEN WAY AND REACH CONSENSUS ON HOW TO BEST SERVE THE COMMUNITY. FOR THAT, YOU DESERVE A GREAT DEAL OF THANKS. AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT AS SOMEBODY WHO HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN MUNICIPAL GOVERNMENT FOR 30 SOME YEARS, LAST MONDAY NIGHT WAS A PROUD MOMENT FOR ME TO WATCH YOU AS A COUNCIL WORK THROUGH THIS CHALLENGING TOPIC IN TERMS OF FINDING THE RIGHT VOICE.

THE AMENDMENT THAT YOU MADE DOES INCLUDE ALL OF THE ITEMS YOU DISCUSSED LAST WEEK. COUNCIL HAD DONE A GOOD JOB OF GOING THROUGH AND INDICATING ITS AGREEMENT ON THE VARIOUS CHANGES PROPOSED BY INDIVIDUAL COUNCIL MEMBERS.

AND SO YOU WILL SEE IN THE PRESENTATION SLIDE THAT MS. THRESS HAS PUT FORWARD, ALL OF THE CHANGES, THOSE CHANGES -- MS. THRESS, I BELIEVE WE MAY HAVE THE WRONG VERSION UP.

I APOLOGIZE. IF YOU COULD DOUBLE CHECK THAT LOOKS TO BE ONE OF THE ALTERNATIVE VERSIONS.

I WOULD GO FORWARD. THE COUNCIL EDITS PUT FORWARD HAVE BEEN THOROUGHLY DISCUSSED. I BELIEVE COUNCIL UNLESS THEY HAVE ADDITIONAL CHANGES TO WHAT WAS DISCUSSED LAST WEEK, WOULD HAPPEN PREPARED TO MOVE FORWARD. THERE WERE A COUPLE OF CHANGES

[01:30:01]

SUGGESTED AS POSSIBILITIES YOU COULD DISCUSS TONIGHT.

ONE WAS WHEN I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THE TRANSCRIPT OF LAST MONDAY'S MEETING AND THE DISCUSSION REGARDING WANTING TO ADD THE WHEREAS CONDEMNING RACISM IN ALL FORMS, IT OCCURRED TO ME THAT AS A WHEREAS, IN A RATHER SHORT WHEREAS, IN A SEE A VERY LONG WHEREASES, THERE WAS A POSSIBILITY THAT MIGHT BE LOST.

ONE SUGGESTION I HAD OFFERED FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS WHEN YOU WANTED TO -- WHETHER YOU WANTED TO INCLUDE THE PHRASE IN THE TITLE, WHETHER YOU WANTED TO INCLUDE IT AS A SPECIFIC SECTION DOWN IN THE OPERATIVE PART OF THE RESOLUTION VERSUS THE WHEREAS CLAUSE. YOU COULD CONSIDER MAKING THOSE CHANGES. THE OTHER SUGGESTION THAT COUNCIL PRESIDENT MICHAEL BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION WAS WHETHER OR NOT THERE WASN'T A NEED FOR SOME MENTION OF COUNCIL'S WILLINGNESS TO ENGAGE IN OMMUNITY OUTREACH IN DISCUSSION REGARDING THIS SERIOUS TOPIC.

AND WHILE WE HAVE A NUMBER OF ACTION STEPS INCLUDED, THAT WAS NOT INCLUDED. I KNOW FROM MY DISCUSSIONS WITH COUNCIL, THIS IS A TOPIC YOU ARE VERY INTERESTED IN HAVING THAT DISCUSSION. AND SO I DID PROPOSE SOME LANGUAGE THAT COULD BE INCLUDED AS AN ADDITIONAL SECTION.

AND SO GOING FORWARD PURPOSES, IF YOU INDICATE OR HAVE A DISCUSSION IF SOMEBODY MOVES TO AMEND NE OR OTHER OF THOSE OPTIONS WE COULD DISCUSS THOSE AND VOTE ON THOSE AMENDMENTS IF

COUNCIL WAS INTERESTED. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I THINK THE BEST THING TO DO IS AKE THEM ONE AT A TIME.

I THINK WE DID THAT LAST WEEK. AND IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY.

CAN YOU GIVE THE RACISM AND ALL FORMS, I GUESS THE OPTIONS THAT YOU AD DISCUSSED IF I HEARD CORRECTLY WERE HAVING IT IN THE TITLE, INCLUDING IT SOMEWHERE ELSE OR HAVING IT AS A SEPARATE SECTION NUMBER. AND SO I'M WONDERING WHAT OTHER COUNCILMEMBERS FEEL SO WE CAN DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH THIS.

ARE WE ALL AGREEING THAT WAS AN IMPORTANT CONCEPT BUT WHERE TO PUT IT. I'M OPEN TO IDEAS AND LOVE TO HEAR WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY. MR. BUCHER, YOU ROUGHT THAT UP.

DO YOU HAVE A THOUGHT YOU WOULD WANT TO HAVE --

>> P. BUCHER: YEAH. I THINK IF POSSIBLE IN THE TITLE, I THINK THAT'S CLEAR TO PUT IT UP FRONT.

TO ME IT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S ONE OF THE KEY PIECES AS WELL AS HOW WE GO FORWARD IN OUR COMMUNITY.

I'M SUPPORTIVE OF CONSIDERING IT IN THE TITLE AND POSSIBLY KEEPING IT S ITS OWN SECTION ON THE SECOND PAGE AS WELL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ARE YOU MOVING THAT?

>> P. BUCHER: HAPPY TO. UNLESS OTHERS WANT TO DISCUSS IT FIRST. I'M OPEN TO IDEAS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE TO HAVE A MOTION AND SECOND TO DISCUSS IT. I'M HOPING SOMEBODY WILL SECOND

IT SO WE AN DISCUSS IT. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I'LL SECOND IT.

92. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE A MOTION AND SECOND. NOW WE'REOPE OPEN TO DISCUSSION.

ANYBODY? >> B. KOWALCZYK: SOUNDS GOOD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MS. KOWALCZYK LIKES T.

ANY OTHER THOUGHTS OR COMMENTS? >> D. ROBINSON: GOOD IDEA,

MR. BUCHER. >> R. DOROTHY: I'M GOOD WITH IT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. SO WE HAVE A MOTION TO AMEND, A FIRST AMENDMENT TO THIS RESOLUTION.

TO INCLUDE THE EQUITY AND -- R. LINDSEY, GIVE ME THE WORDS.

I DON'T HAVE THEM IN FRONT OF ME.

>> MR. LINDSEY: LET ME MAKE THE PROPOSED MOTION AS I UNDERSTOOD IS IT FROM MR. BUCHER AND FROM WHAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN.

THE TITLE WOULD BE AMENDED TO INCLUDE THE PHRASE, "CONDEMNING RACISM IN ALL FORMS,"THAT WOULD IMMEDIATELY FOLLOW THE WORDS, IMPACTS OF RACISMS AND PRECEDE THE AND COMMITTING TO PROMOTE RACIAL EQUITY. THE TITLE AS AMENDED WOULD READ RECOGNIZING THE IMPACTS OF RACISM, CONDEMNING RACISM IN ALL FORMS, AND COMMITTING TO PROMOTE RACIAL EQUITY.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT WOULD BE TO STRIKE THE 11TH WHEREAS

[01:35:06]

CLAUSE. WHICH CURRENTLY READ, WHEREAS CITY COUNCIL CONDEMNS RACISM IN ALL FORMS A AND...

AND THE THIRD COMPONENT OF THE MOTION WOULD BE TO ADD A NEW SECTION NUMBER TWO, THAT WOULD READ, "CITY COUNCIL CONDEMNS RACISM IN ALL FORMS." AND THE FOURTH COMPONENT TO RENUMBER THE REMAINING SECTIONS THREE THROUGH NINE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. ARE THERE ANY COMMENTS REGARDING THIS MOTION? HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ALL OPPOSED.

OKAY. SO WE MOVED THAT.

NOW THERE IS THE OTHER SUGGESTION, MR. LINDSEY, COULD YOU PLEASE READ THAT, BRING THAT FORWARD.

WE HAVE TO RENUMBER THE SEC SECTIONS.

>> MR. LINDSEY: YES. THEREFORE, THE SUGGESTION WOULD BE TO INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING SECTION, WHICH WOULD NOW BE SECTION SEVEN OF THE REVISED AMENDED VERSION.

THAT SECTION WOULD READ AS FOLLOWS: THAT CITY COUNCIL WILL PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND ENGAGE N PERSONAL AND PUBLIC DIALOGUE TOWARDS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE IMPACTS OF RACISM AND THE POTENTIAL AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY AND OUR GOVERNMENT.

THE SECOND CHANGE WOULD THEN BE TO RENUMBER THE SECTIONS

EIGHT THROUGH 10. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

IS THERE SOMEBODY WHO CAN MOVE THAT SINCE I CAN'T?

>> D. ROBINSON: I MOVE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS

THERE A SECOND? >> B. KOWALCZYK: I'LL SECOND.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. NOW ANY DISCUSSION REGARDING

THIS POTENTIAL ADDITION? >> D. ROBINSON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, YOUR LANGUAGE AND YOUR IDEA, WHICH I THINK IS GOOD, COULD YOU PLEASE DESCRIBE SOME OF THE SPECIFICS OR GENERAL

IDEAS YOU HAVE IN MIND? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHEN I LOOKED AT WHAT WE HAD, WE HAD THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION DOING OUTREACH. BUT I DIDN'T SEE WHERE COUNCIL WAS GOING TO BE DOING SOME SORT OF OUTREACH.

I SEE THIS AS THE COUNCIL REACHING OUT TO THE PUBLIC AND COMMUNITY AND ESTABLISH SOME TYPES OF DIALOGUES, EXACT SPECIFICS, I DON'T HAVE. BUT I THINK WE CAN HAVE COUNCIL BEING PART OF THE ACTION OF OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY.

>> D. ROBINSON: I WOULD AGREE. ARE YOU THINKING IN TERMS OF AS A BODY OR SIMPLY AS INDIVIDUALS DOING SO?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WAS THINKING MORE AS A BODY.

>> D. ROBINSON: OKAY. GOOD.

THANK YOU. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT THAT. I PARTICIPATED IN THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION MEETING ON LAST TUESDAY I THINK IT WAS.

AND JUST A QUESTION ABOUT, I DO NOT DISAGREE THAT IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR US TO DO OUTREACH. BUT I THINK THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION SEES THIS AS A ROLE THEY CAN HELP US WITH. AND SO TO HAVE TWO SEPARATE TRACKS GOING, ESSENTIALLY IN THIS RESOLUTION, TWO SEPARATE STEPS AND ACTIONS WITHOUT REALLY THINKING THROUGH WHAT THE GOAL IS CONCERNS ME. AND SO I THINK IN TERMS OF WHAT THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION WAS CONFUSED BY OUR CONVERSATION AND WHAT THEIR ROLE IS IN THIS.

THEY HAVE SOME REALLY ENERGIZED AND ENGAGED NEW MEMBERS.

THEY HAVE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ATTENDING THEIR MEETINGS RIGHT NOW. AND THEY HAVE SOME IDEAS THEY WANT TO BRING FORTH ON HOW THEY CAN ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY AND DO THE THINGS THEY ARE CHARGED WITH DOING IN THE CHARTER.

HOW DOES YOUR PROPOSAL MESH WITH WHAT THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES ARE, AND THEY SEE WHAT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY IS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I SEE THAT THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION IS PART OF THE CITY. AND IT'S CITY COUNCIL IS THE

[01:40:05]

STOP PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING SURE THERE IS OUTREACH AND DIALOGUE AND THAT.

THIS SHOULD NOT BE MUTUALLYCLUSIVE EXCLUSIVE WE CAN'T WORK TOGETHER WITH THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION.

I THINK WE ARE THE COUNCIL AND WE SHOULDN'T LEAVE THE FULL RESPONSIBILITY OF OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION. AND THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN BEFORE, COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION, WE WERE DOING THINGS FOR REVIEW AND COME BACK WITH REVIEW, NOTHING THAT HAD CITY COUNCIL BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR OUTREACH OR OVERSIGHT ON OUTREACH. THAT'S KIND OF HOW I LOOKED AT

IT. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I GUESS JUST TO TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER, AVE YOU THOUGHT HOW THE OUTREACH WOULD OCCUR IN TERMS OF HAVING PUBLIC HEARINGS?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I HAVEN'T THOUGHT ON THAT --

>> B. KOWALCZYK: HOW COULD THAT BE FACILITATED?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHEN I WAS READING THE ORDINANCE, I WAS SEEING WE HAD THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION DOING THE OUTREACH. WE HAD COUNCIL NOT DOING ANY OUTREACH TO THE COMMUNITY. IT HAD US DOING INTERNAL REVIEWS AND REPORTS AND FINDINGS AND COMING ACK BUT NOTHING THAT HAD COUNCIL COMMITTED O COUNCIL OUTREACH.

THAT'S WHERE MY THOUGHT WENT. I DON'T BELIEVE I HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS ON HOW TO DO ANY OF THAT.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I GUESS THE CONCERN IS JUST THAT -- IT'S LIKE A BROAD STATEMENT. AND USUALLY WE HAVE SOMETHING THAT FOLKS ARE RESPONDING TO. AND SO I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT A WIDE OPEN, LET'S HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING ON ANTIRACISM OR RACIAL EQUITY WITHOUT HAVING STRUCTURE AND THINKING IT THROUGH AS TO WHAT THE GOAL IS. SO I AGREE WITH THE STATEMENT IN GENERAL THAT WE SHOULD BE HEARING FROM THE COMMUNITY.

I THINK THE CHARGE OF THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION IS TO ALSO DO THAT FOR US AS WELL.

BUT JUST TRYING TO UNDERSTAND WHAT OUR RESPECTIVE ROLES ARE AND EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE ASKING THE COMMUNITY TO TELL US.

AND HOW THAT -- WHAT WE DO WITH THAT INFORMATION.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO MAKE STEPS OR ACTION, WE HAVE TO HAVE A PLAN ON WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO WITH IT.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WOULDN'T THAT COME AS A FOLLOW-UP TO THIS ASPIRATIONAL RESOLUTION? AND I WANT TO MAKE CERTAIN, THIS IS ULTIMATELY COUNCIL'S RESPONSIBILITY TO ADDRESS THIS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT ISSUE. I THINK IT WOULD BE USURPING OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DELEGATE THAT TO A COMMISSION.

THE COMMISSION WILL CERTAINLY PLAY A ROLE.

BUT I THINK IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, WE NEED TO MAKE THE -- TAKE THE LEAD. I THINK THIS GOES FURTHER TO SAY THIS. I THINK WE WILL DEVELOP FROM THIS, I HOPE, AN ACTION PLAN. I LOOK AT THIS AS OUR DIRECTION, NOT OUR ROADMAP. AND AS WE CONTINUE TO DISCUSS THIS, WE WILL THEN DEVELOP OUR ACTION PLAN AND WE WILL IND THE ROLE THAT BEST FITS FOR COMMUNITY RELATION TO CARRY OUT

OUR RESPONSIBILITY. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I LIKE THE IDEA OF TALKING ABOUT AN ACTION PLAN. I THINK IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ACTIONS WE'RE GOING TO TAKE, THAT SHOULD BE IN THE RESOLUTION THAT WE DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN. RIGHT NOW EVERYONE IS ENERGIZED AND EXCITED ABOUT DOING THINGS AND THERE IS NO PLAN PUT IN PLACE. WE NEED TO, IF THAT'S WHAT WE'RE COMMITTED TO DOING, THAT SHOULD BE PART OF THIS TOO.

NOT JUST WE'RE GOING TO LISTEN TO THE COMMUNITY.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I THINK WE NEED TO TABLE AND GO BACK TO THE

DRAWING BOARD. >> B. KOWALCZYK: WELL, I'M CONFUSED. BECAUSE YOU ARE SAYING THAT'S OUR POINT IS WE WANT TO PUT FORTH AN ACTION PLAN AFTER LISTENING TO THE COMMUNITY. WHY NOT PUT THAT THE IN THE

RESOLUTION? >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I'M NOT CERTAIN WHAT SPECIFICS YOU WANT. I'M COMMITTING BY THIS RESOLUTION TO AN IDEAL AND COMMITMENT TO MOVE FORWARD.

AND THEN AS PART OF WHAT I DO MOVING FORWARD I WILL THEN DEVELOP THE PLAN AS TO HOW WE DO IT.

IN MORE SPECIFIC DETAIL. I THINK THAT'S IMPLICIT IN THE

RESOLUTION. >> B. KOWALCZYK: CAN WE LOOK AT THE LANGUAGE AGAIN? BECAUSE I THINK WE'RE COMMITTING TO ACTIONS WITH THAT LANGUAGE. I GUESS THAT'S WHERE I'M GETTING

HUNG UP. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I HATE TO BRING THIS UP. THAT AISES ANOTHER QUESTION.

DID THIS GO OUT BY EMAIL? I DON'T REMEMBER GETTING IT.

[01:45:01]

THE VERSION I'M LOOKING AT ON THE SCREEN.

>> MR. LINDSEY: YES, IT WOULD HAVE GONE OUT BY EMAIL.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THIS AFTERNOON?

>> MR. LINDSEY: YES. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: OKAY.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: WHY COULDN'T WE ADD IN THIS LANGUAGE, CITY COUNCIL WILL PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND ENGAGE PERSONAL AND PUBLIC DIALOGUE TOWARDS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE IMPACTS OF RACISM AND PUT FORTH A PLAN OR DEVELOP A PLAN, ACTION PLAN ADDRESSING THE POTENTIAL AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY AND IN OUR GOVERNMENT.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I CAN LIVE WITH THAT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I'M FINE.

>> P. BUCHER: I LIKE THAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: IS THAT A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT TO THE

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. ROB INSON, YOU MOVED IT.

AND MS. KOWALCZYK, YOU SECONDED IT.

MR. ROBINSON, DO YOU ACCEPT THE FRIENDLY AMENDMENT TO THE

AMENDMENT? >> D. ROBINSON: I ACCEPT AS HEARD. OKAY.

IS THERE ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS AMENDMENT?

MR. -- >> MR. LINDSEY: MR. LINDSEY,

YES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COULD YOU PLEASE READ IT AS IT WILL READ SO WE CAN HEAR IT.

>> MR. LINDSEY: YES, I WANT TO MAKE SURE I HAVE CORRECTLY NOTED IT. SO I WOULD ASK THE MOTION MAKER AND SECONDER IN PARTICULAR TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION.

SECTION SEVEN HAT CITY COUNCIL WILL PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND ENGAGE IN PERSONAL PUBLIC DIALOGUE TOWARDS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE IMPACTS OF RACISM AND DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN FOR POTENTIAL AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY AND OUR GOVERNMENT. THE PHRASE, DEVELOP AN ACTION PLAN FOR, WAS INSERTED IN PLACE OF THE WORD, "THE." IF WE KEEP DOING THESE VIRTUAL MEETINGS, I PROMISE YOU I AM GOING TO LEARN HOW TO EDIT ON THE FLY ON MY COMPUTER SO YOU CAN READ IT WHILE WE DO IT. BUT I HAVE NOT LEARNED THAT YET.

SO I APOLOGIZE THAT YOU CAN'T SEE IT.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: THAT SOUNDS >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. ROB

INSON. >> D. ROBINSON: YES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL THOSE IN FAVOR WITH THE FRIENDRY AMENDMENT AMENDMENT, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

ALL OPPOSED. ARE THERE ANY OTHER AMENDMENTS TO THIS RESOLUTION THAT ANYONE WANTS TO MAKE.

IF NOT, ALL IN FAVOR IN FAVOR OF THIS RESOLUTION AS AMENDED, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN.

RESOLUTION 27-2020 IS PASSED. I THANK YOU COUNCIL FOR THE DILIGENT WORK AND HARD EFFORT YOU PUT IN IN GETTING THIS DONE.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. BROWN.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, SHARE ME SCREEN REAL QUICK, WE HAVE THE APPLICANT ON THE LINE, MR. CARLIN IS ABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

YOU MAY REMEMBER THIS A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO.

MR. MCCORKLE HAD THE AS PART OF THE FACADE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM HAD PLAY CBUS ON YOUR DOCKET O RECEIVE FINANCIAL MONEY FOR

[01:50:04]

THEIR IMPROVEMENTS. IT DID GO TO PLANNING COMMISSION. AND ACTUALLY TO CITY COUNCIL LAST YEAR IN JULY OF 2019. FOR APPROVAL FOR AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT INCLUDED VARIANCES FOR PARKING AND RECEIVED A CONDITIONAL USE FROM PLANK TO OPERATES IN THE FACILITY. THEY ARE GOING TO WITH THEIR SIGNAGE PACKAGE. THE SIGN CODE IS A LITTLE BIT MORE RESTRICTIVE AS IT PLAYS OUT TO THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

HOWEVER, ALONG -270, STANDARDS ARE MORE RELAXED TO THE ROAD FRONTAGE WE HAVE. WHAT YOU SAW BACK ORIGINALLY BEFORE YOU IS FOR 600 SQUARE FEET ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING TOWARD INTERSTATE 270. ADDITIONAL 200 SQUARE FOOT SIGN ON THE EASTERN ELEVATION FACING EAST YOU WILL SEE COMING ALONG FROM I-270. THE ROADRUNNER SIGNAGE YOU HAVE NOW WILL BE REMOVED ON HE SOUTHSIDE OF THE BUILDING.

THAT WAS APPROVED SEVERAL YEARS AGO.

WITH ABOUT 900 SQUARE FEET IN SIZE.

600 SQUARE FEET ON THE SOUTH SIDE.

AND THEY HAD ADDITIONAL 300 SQUARE FEET ON THE EASTERN ELEVATION. AS YOU KNOW SINCE ROADRUNNERS LEFT, THE RETAIL PORTION HAS STAYED IN A SMALL PORTION OF THE BUILDING. AND SO THERE IS SIGN ON THE EASTERN SITE HAS REMAINED. TO EXCEED THE 600 SQUARE FEET.

IT WENT TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION ON MAY 28, THEY RECOMMENDED APPROVAL TO CITY COUNCIL AND RECOMMENDED APPROVAL TO THE VARIANCE ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

AND I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. AND MR. CARLLIN IS ON THE LINE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR HIM.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> R. DOROTHY: WHEN ARE THE SIGNS GOING TO BE PUT UP? ARE THERE THERE? I DON'T RECALL.

I HAVEN'T BEEN DRIVING A LOT. >> I UNDERSTAND.

THE SIGNS IN THE PHOTOS WERE TAKEN A CURF WEEK COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. THERE IS A TEMPORARY BANNER THAT STATES, COMING SOON. AT LEAST FROM THE BILLING SI SIGN -- UILDING SIGN, THEY ARE GETTING THE BUILDING READY TO OPEN AND FUNCTION ON THE SITE. MR. CARLIN CAN ANSWER EXACT

DATES. >> SURE.

I CAN GO FURTHER. WE HAVE NOT ORDERED THE SIGNS YET. WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE HAD THE APPROPRIATE APPROVALS IN PLACE.

WITH CONSIDERATION AND POTENTIAL APPROVAL, WE WERE GOING TO GO FORWARD WITH THE ORDER AND HAVE THEM UP WITHIN SIX WEEKS.

>> R. DOROTHY: WE'RE EXCITED TO HAVE YOU HERE IN THE COMMUNITY.

THANK YOU FOR CONTINUING TO MOVE FORWARD IN THESE STRANGE TIMES.

REALLY APPRECIATE IT. I KNOW PEOPLE ARE STIR CRAZY AND LOVE TO GET OUT AND DO ADDITIONAL THINGS.

SO CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU OPEN. >> WELL, THANK YOU.

[9.A.II. Worthington ReBOOT Update]

MR. GREESON, THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY INITIATIVE REBOOT.

>> M. GREESON: YEAH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, YOU WILL RECALL FROM OUR CORONAVIRUS INCIDENT COMMAND BRIEFINGS AT COUNCIL, ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE DONE IS TO CREATE ESSENTIALLY A BUSINESS ECOVERY GROUP.

INVITED SOME OF OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS AND BUSINESS LEADERS AND INDIVIDUALS WE THOUGHT COULD ADD VALUE TO THE TEAM TO HELP WITH THIS. IT'S BEEN COORDINATED BY MR. MCCORKLE. AND HE'S GOING TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON REBOOT. AS WELL AS ONE OF THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS. MR. MCCORKLE.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL I JUST HAVE A COUPLE OF SLIDES HERE I'LL GO THROUGH.

WORTHINGTON REBOOT, IT WOULDN'T BE A GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE UNLESS WE HAD A COOL ACRONYM. IT IS THE RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS OPENING AND OUTREACH TEAM. AND SO THIS IS A FUNCTION OF THE LIAISON SECTION OF OUR INCIDENT COMMAND STRUCTURE.

THIS IS JUST THE TABLE OF ORGANIZATION THAT WE'RE USING RIGHT NOW. SO YOU CAN SEE WE'VE GOT IT SPLIT INTO A USINESS SIDE AND THEN A SOCIAL SERVICE SIDE AT THE BOTTOM THERE, HEAD UP BY LISA FULLER FROM THE WORTHINGTON LIBRARY. WE HAVE A PRETTY ROBUST SUPPORT TEAM. WE AVE THE CHAMBER INVOLVED, WE'VE GOT THE EXPERIENCE WORTHINGTON, WE'VE GOT THE WORTHINGTON PARTNERSHIP AS WELL AS A ROBUST OPERATIONS TEAM THERE. WE STARTED WITH TWO CALLS PER WEEK, DOWN TO ONE CALL PER WEEK. WE DO HAVE STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH, SBA LIAISON FOR SOME OF THE FEDERAL FUNDING AS WELL AS PRESENTATIONS FROM LOCAL BANKS.

WHAT WE'VE DONE IS SENT OUT A SURVEY TO APPROXIMATELY 150 AREA BUSINESSES, FOCUSED ON RESTAURANTS AND RETAIL.

WE HAVE ABOUT A 25% RESPONSE RATE.

AND THE GROUP HAS BEEN FOCUSED ON SPECIFICALLY ATTACKING ACTIONABLE ITEMS AND SPECIFIC ASKS SO TH TH THERE IS A COUPLE.

TEMPORARY TAKE OUT PARKING, FLEXIBILITY ON SIGNAGE AND HELP WITH SIMPLE TABLE LAYOUTS SO BUSINESSES FEEL SAFE OPENING THEIR DOORS. THE MAJOR ONE THAT WE'VE HEARD IS MARKETING, ADVERTISING, AND SOCIAL MEDIA SUPPORT.

WE CONTINUE TO HEAR, THIS IS A MAJOR ISSUE FOR OUR BUSINESSES AND THAT'S WHAT'S BEFORE YOU TODAY.

JUST A COUPLE OF REAL QUICK SLIDES.

BUSINESSES HAVE REOPENED. YOU CAN SEE HERE THAT OVERHALF HAVE NOT. THE NEXT SLIDE IS IF YOU ARE NOT OPENING OR UNSURE WHAT ARE THE MAIN REASONS YOU CAN SEE THE TOP COUPLE THERE. IT'S TOO RISKY FROM A HEALTH PERSPECTIVE IS WHAT WE'RE HEARD. THE EMPLOYEES ARE HESITANT, THE 44%, WAITING TO SEE WHAT OTHER BUSINESSES DO.

IT'S JUST NOT A PROFITABLE OPTION RIGHT NOW.

WE'VE ASKED IF THEY NEED ASSISTANCE REOPENING.

YOU CAN SEE THERE THAT A GOOD CHUNK, 62% SAID NO.

BUT WE'RE FOCUSING ON THE ONE THIRD OF BUSINESSES THAT ARE UNSURE OR INDICATED THEY NEED ASSISTANCE.

AND THEN WE'VE ASKED WHAT TYPE OF ASSISTANCE, IT'S BEEN ALL OVER THE BOARD. IT'S SAFE TO SAY A LOT OF OUR BUSINESSES ARE REOPENING SLOWLY AND NOT XACTLY SURE WHAT THEY NEED. WE ASKED IF THEY ARE IN DANGER OF CLOSING. YOU CAN SEE THERE THAT SOME ARE FINE. BUT OTHERS AREN'T SURE.

SO WHAT WE'RE FOCUS ON IS IT'S LIKELY.

THAT'S A ONE RESPONSE WE FOLLOWED UP WITH DIRECTLY AND PROVIDE ASSISTANCE AS NEEDED. AND ANOTHER HANDFUL THAT SAID IT'S A GOOD POSSIBILITY. A COUPLE OF CHARTS ON THE SALES.

YOU CAN SEE THERE THE TOP ONE IS JUST THEIR SALES CARED TO LAST YEAR. WE CAN SEE THAT OVER75% ARE DOWN

[02:00:01]

AT LEAST 25% OF THEIR SALES VOLUME FROM SAME TIME LAST YEAR.

THE BOTTOM SLIDE YOU CAN SEE OVER 50% OF BUSINESSES HAVE INDICATED THAT WON'T LAST SIX MONTHS IF THEIR SALES DON'T START TO INCREASE. THE OTHER COMMENTS WE HAD AN OPEN-ENDED QUESTION, WHERE WE ASKED FOR PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK.

HERE WERE THE SUGGESTIONS. TABLE LAYOUT AND REOPENING LOGISTICS FOR SAFETY. WE HAVE A LIAISON THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE OLD WORTHINGTON MERCHANT MEETING AND FOLLOWING UP WITH PEOPLE PROVIDING SPECIFIC GUIDANCE ON TABLE LAYOUT. WE HAVE AN SBA LIAISON AS WELL AS BANKERS TO HELP WITH THE FEDERAL STIMULUS, PPE GUIDANCE.

OTHER THINGS THAT HAVE COME UP WERE EXPANDED OUTDOOR DINING AREAS. USING PUBLIC SPACES FOR OUTDOOR TAKE OUT. EXPANDED DOOR HOURS.

WE HAVEN'T PUSHED THAT FORWARD YET BUT THAT'S BEEN AN IDEA THAT'S COME UP. THE EED FOR POTENTIAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. AND I THINK YOU WILL HEAR MORE ABOUT THAT IN THE COMING WEEKS S AS WE START TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT OF THE CARES ACT AND CITY OF WORTHINGTON AND GRANT DOLLARS WE MAY BE ABLE TO PUSH OUT. AND SPECIFICALLY, THE LAST ITEM TONIGHT IS THE NEED WITH HELP WITH ADVERTISING, MARKETING AND PROMOTING. WE HAVE HEARD FROM MULTIPLE BUSINESSES NOW THAT WHAT THEY NEED IS THEY NEED CUSTOMERS THAT THEY CAN REOPEN SAFELY AND SUCCESSFULLY.

AND TO START TO DRIVE SOME TRAFFIC BACK TO OUR BUSINESSES IN A VERY SAFE WAY. AND SO WHAT WE'VE COME UP WITH, THE TEAM CAME UP WITH, WE'RE OPEN CAMPAIGN.

THIS IS MY FINAL SLIDE. WHAT YOU CAN SEE HERE IS ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE THE, WE'RE OPEN, AND YOU CAN SEE THE MASKS AS WELL AS SOCIAL DISTANCING AND HAND WASHING.

THAT IS A FLIER THAT IS ABOUT A TWO-FOOT FLIER THAT IS GOING TO BE SHOWING UP IN A LOT OF OUR WORTHINGTON WINDOWS.

THE RETAIL ESTABLISHMENTS AND RESTAURANTS WILL ACTUALLY HAVE THAT IN THEIR WINDOWS AS A MARKETING EFFORT.

AND WHAT YOU SEE ON THE RIGHT AND WHAT IS BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING IS OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY AND OUR REBOOT TEAM ARE PUSHING FOR THE PURCHASE OF 100 FEATHER FLAGS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT THERE, IT SAYS, OPEN FOR CARRY OUT.

THE ONES WE WOULD CONSIDER ORDERING ARE THE TWO YOU SEE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER. ONE SAYS, WE'RE OPEN.

THAT IS THE MARKETING CAMPAIGN. THE OTHER ONE IS, OPEN TO ALL.

WE FEEL THAT IN THESE TRYING TIMES, THE OPEN TO ALL, IT DOES HAVE MULTIPLE MEANINGS. IT MEANS WELCOME.

AND OUR BUSINESSES ARE OPEN. BUT IT ALSO HAS A DIRECT TIE TO SOME OF THE NONDISCRIMINATION PIECES THAT YOU DISCUSSED EARLIER THIS EVENING. THAT IS ALL THAT I HAVE.

WHAT THE ASK IS, IT'S NOT FOR ADDITIONAL APPROPRIATION.

IT IS FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN USING SOME OF THE EXISTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PROMOTIONAL DOLLARS, APPROXIMATELY 10,000.

WE DID GET THREE DIFFERENT QUOTES TO PURCHASE 100 FLAGS, JUST UNDER $10,000. THEY ARE $95 A PIECE.

WE ARE LOOKING, SEEKING A MOTION FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO USE SOME OF THE REDIRECT SOME OF THE PROMOTIONAL DOLLARS TO SUPPORT THIS MARKETING EFFORT. HAPPY TO ANSWER NY QUESTIONS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION, MR. MCCORKLE.

MY WIFE AND I WENT OUT TO DINNER LAST SUNDAY.

AND IT SEEMED LIKE PEOPLE WERE STILL VERY HESITANT TO GO OUT.

UNDERSTANDABLY. WE FELT VERY COMFORTABLE IN THE RESTAURANT. I THINK THAT IT WAS A LOCAL RESTAURANT. THEY HAD TAKEN ALL THE APPROPRIATE MEASURES. THERE AN EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT OF THIS? HOW DO WE GET THE WORD OUT IT'S

OKAY TO COME OUT? >> I THINK THERE ABSOLUTELY IS.

THAT'S PART OF THE MARKETING CAMPAIGN.

WE'VE GOT EXPERIENCE WORTHINGTON.

WE'VE GOT THE CHAMBER, THE PARTNERSHIP AND THEN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. WE'RE GOING O START TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR GENERAL PUBLIC AND VISITORS ARE AWARE OF THE ACTIONS WE'RE TAKING. WHEN YOU SAW THE, WE'RE OPEN, BANNER GOING INTO THE WINDOWS OF SOME OF THE BUSINESSES, THEY ARE DIRECTLY INTERACTING WITH COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH.

[02:05:03]

AND WE'RE GOING TO REQUIRE THEM TO HAVE SOME INTERACTION WITH THE PUBLIC HEALTH BEFORE THEY CAN PUT THAT IN THEIR WINDOW.

I THINK IT'S EDUCATION PIECE ON THE BUSINESS SIDE.

BUT THEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, I THINK AS WE STARTS DO DEMONSTRATE WE ARE DOING THIS THE RIGHT WAY, WE ARE DOING IT SLOWLY BUT WE'RE DOING IT SAFELY, I THINK YOU WILL START TO SEE THE NUMBERS GO UP. WE HAVE IAN BROWN ON OUR REBOOT TEAM FROM THE WHITNEY HOUSE. HE'S SERVED AS A BAROMETER FOR US OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS. I CAN SHARE THAT HIS IN-- NUMBERS ARE DOWN SIGNIFICANTLY. HE HAS SEEN THEM START TO CLIMB OVER THE LAST THREE WEEKS. BUT THERE ARE NOWHERE NEAR WHERE THEY WERE THIS TIME LAST YEAR. EDUCATION IS A BIG PIECE OF IT.

I THINK THIS IS GOING TO TAKE TIME.

THE IDEA IS IF WE HAVE MARKETING CAMPAIGN, IF WE HAVE 100 FEATHER FLAGS LINING HIGH STREET AND SOME OF OUR BUSINESSES ARE DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY AND WE GET GOOD PUBLICITY, WE CAN DRIVE TRAFFIC

BACK TO OUR BUSINESSES. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: DO YOU KNOW, I KNOW WHEN I GO INTO A RESTAURANT, I WILL SEE THE COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH GRADE STICKER ON THE DOOR OF THE RESTAURANT. SORT OF AT TIMES SCARLET LETTER KIND OF A THING. DO YOU KNOW F COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH IS DOING ANYTHING THAT WOULD SAY, YES, WE HAVE INSPECTED THE BEST PRACTICES OF THIS RESTAURANT AND WE CERTIFY THEIR HEALTH OR WHATEVER IT HAPPENS TO BE?

>> I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY ARE DOING THAT.

I KNOW THEY ARE LETTING US KNOW WHEN PEOPLE ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES THAT THEY SHOULD BE.

BUT I'M NOT -- I CAN'T SPEAK TO THE ENDORSEMENT OF COLUMBUS PUBLIC HEALTH. MAYBE SOMEBODY ELSE.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: IF YOU DO INTERACT WITH CPH, I AGREE WITH YOU. THEY ARE QUICK TO POINT OUT WHO IS NOT FOLLOWING. IT WOULD BE NICE IF WE COULD

HEAR WHO IS FOLLOWING. >>

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I'VE HAD BOTH.

GOOD INTERACTIONS AND NOT SO GOOD.

AND IT WOULD BE NICE IF WE COULD HIGHLIGHT THAT AT LEAST WHERE I HAVE BEEN IN WORTHINGTON, THERE SEEMS TO BE PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL COMPLIANCE. AND IT ISN'T ALL THE BUSINESS OWNERS, IT'S THE CUSTOMERS. A LOT OF TIMES THAT ARE CREATING THE ISSUES. I THINK FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN AROUND TOWN, WE'RE DOING A PRETTY GOOD JOB.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: MR. MEYERS, TO FOLLOW-UP ON THAT, I KNOW MR. MCCORKLE AND I DISCUSSED THIS INITIATIVE IN A MEETING.

A SUGGESTION I HAD COULD WE DO A PSA FOR CUSTOMERS TO BE WEARING MASKS? BECAUSE THAT'S IF EVERYBODY IS WEARING ONE, THAT'S WHERE YOU GET YOUR PROTECTION.

AND I KNOW PARKS AND REC DID A GREAT, PARKS ARE REOPENING AND HAVING THE KIDS TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO STAY SAFE ON THE PLAYGROUND. IS THERE ANYTHING LIKE THAT WE CAN DO FOR BUSINESSES IN TOWN AS WELL? BECAUSE I AGREE WITH YOU, THAT WE NEED TO EDUCATE EVERYBODY ON HOW TO STAY SAFE IN THIS NEW LIFE WE HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE OTHER THING TOO IS THAT WE HAVE YOUR RETAIL STORES THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE MASKS AND YOU HAVE THE RESTAURANTS WHERE NOBODY CAN EAT WITH A MASK ON.

THEN YOU EXPECT THE SERVER TO HAVE A MASK AND GLOVES.

I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS SOME WAY WE CAN MAYBE EVEN HAVE SOMETHING THROUGH EXPERIENCE WORTHINGTON THAT SHOWS HERE'S WHAT THE EXPERIENCE IS LIKE AT A GOOD, SEVERAL OF OUR GOOD RESTAURANTS IN WORTHINGTON OR SOME OF OUR USINESSES IN WORT.

JUST A THOUGHT. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I HAVE QUESTION TO BUSINESSES NOT COMPLYING. DO WE HAVE BUSINESSES IN WORTHINGTON THAT HAD TO BE REVIEWED FOR NOT FOLLOWING

PRACTICES? >> THERE HAVE BEEN A COUPLE.

MR. GREESON? >> M. GREESON: THE WAY THE PROCESS WORKS IS EITHER WE RECEIVE A COMPLAINT OR COLUMBUS OF PUBLIC HEALTH RECEIVES A COMPLAINT THROUGH THE HOTLINE.

A HEALTH SANITARIAN AND A MEMBER OF DIVISION OF POLICE GO OUT AND INSPECT THE SITUATION. I THINK TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THAT AND ALMOST EVERY INSTANCE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN

[02:10:04]

NUMEROUS TIMES WHERE COMPLAINTS WERE RECEIVED BUT WHEN THE SANITARIANS ADE INSPECTIONS, THEY OBSERVED GOOD PRACTICES.

AND SO THAT WAS EARLIER ON WHEN THERE IS MISUNDERSTANDING OR CONFUSION ON THE BEST PRACTICES. PARTICULARLY, WITH THE PUBLIC IN TERMS OF THEIR EXPECTATIONS OF WHAT THEY EXPECTED TO SEE WHEN THEY WALKED INTO BUSINESSES. AND THEN, IN INSTANCES WHERE THEY OBSERVE PRACTICES THAT COULD BE IMPROVED, THE SANITARIAN WORKED WITH THE OWNER AND IMMEDIATELY ADDRESSED.

WE'VE HAD, I THINK BUSINESSES THAT HAVE WANTED TO DO IT RIGHT AND ON CCASION NEEDED A LITTLE BIT OF HELP.

AND SO WE'RE NOW OUT THERE PROACTIVELY TRYING TO HELP THEM AS OPPOSED TO DOING IT REACTIVELY THROUGH COMPLAINT.

THEY HAVE BEEN REALLY FAIRLY FEW.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: THAT'S GOOD. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I THINK THAT'S AN IMPORTANT ESSAGE TO GET OUT.

IS THAT WORTHINGTON IS A SAFE PLACE TO BE.

SO COME ON OUT. >> I THINK YOU ARE COMPLECT RIGHT. THAT'S THE HOPE OF THE GROUP.

-- EXACTLY RIGHT. WE'RE A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR OTHER COMMUNITIES AND WE BRING VISITORS BACK OUT TO OUR ESTABLISHMENTS.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WELL, I'M CERTAINLY SUPPORTIVE OF ALLOCATING THE FUNDS THAT YOU ARE REQUESTING.

AND I WOULD MOVE THAT WE ENDORSE AND ADOPT THAT RECOMMENDATION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO WE HAVE A SECOND?

>> R. DOROTHY: I STILL WANT TO TALK.

BUT I'LL BE HAPPY TO SECOND. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

SO WE HAVE A MOTION AND A SECOND ABOUT THE $10,000.

BUT WE HAVE THIS WIDE OPEN. MS. DOROTHY?

>> R. DOROTHY: WE HAVE AN HOUR AND 20 MINUTES TO GET TO 11 HERE. WE HAVE SOME TIME.

>> I CAN FILL THAT. >> R. DOROTHY: EXCELLENT.

EXCELLENT. I'M EXCITED ABOUT THIS INITIATIVE. THE PARTNERSHIP HAS A TON OF GOOD IDEAS COMING OUT OF IT THAT WE CAN HELP IMPLEMENT.

I'M HOPING WE HAVE A BUNCH OF COMMUNITY MEMBERS HOPEFULLY EVERY COUNCIL PERSON SIGNED UP FOR THE ENERGY SAVERS PROGRAM SO WE GET MONEY FOR BUSINESSES. WONDERING IF WE HAVE LOOKED AT OPENING UP OUR PUBLIC SPACES MORE TO DINING.

EVEN LETTING PARKING SPACES BE MORE LIKE PARKLET OR DINING SPACES OR SOMEHOW OPENING UP MORE AREA TO THE BUSINESSES IF WE'VE BEEN LOOKING AT THAT. AND ANY OTHER OPTIONS OF WORTHINGTON STRONG MASKS OR WORTHINGTON COME OUT WORTHINGTON MASKS. I KNOW THERE IS LOTS OF GREAT IDEAS COMING OUT OF THE PARTNERSHIP. WONDERING IF WE CAN ELABORATE ON

ANY OF THAT. >> EAH.

THANK YOU, COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY.

THE PARTNERSHIP IS SELLING MASKS.

THEY ARE THE ONES THAT I CAN GET YOU CONTACT INFORMATION.

IT HAS THE WORD, OUR EXPLOSION AROUND IT.

I THINK THEY ARE SELLING THEM 10 BUCKS A PIECE.

REGARDING THE PUBLIC PLACES AND TAKE OUT.

THAT WAS A DIRECT QUESTION THAT WE'VE BEEN ASKING OUR RESTAURANT COMMUNITY. AND THEY DO HAVE INTEREST IN TAKE OUT DINING SOME IN S SOME F THOSE SPACES.

ALMOST LIKE THEY WANTED TO GET THEIR FEET UNDER THEIR OPENING BEFORE THEY TALKED ABOUT THAT. WE TALKED ABOUT VILLAGE GREEN OR MATT IS PROBABLY NOT GOING TO BE HAPPY, EAST NEW ENGLAND BETWEEN DEWEY'S AND THE CORRIDOR AND SHUTTING THAT DOWN.

THOSE ARE IDEAS ARE WHERE WE DO HAVE SOME PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY OR SPACES THAT COULD SERVE FOR TAKE-OUT DINING.

I DON'T THINK WE'RE THERE YET. THERE IS CERTAINLY IDEAS WE'RE

THINKING ABOUT. >> M. GREESON: I'M ALWAYS HAPPY

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FOLLOWI NG UP ON WHAT MS. DOROTHY SAID, I KNOW DOWN HERE IN FLORIDA, SOME OF THE RESTAURANTESS THEY CLOSED DOWN STREETS AND LET PEOPLE PUT THE TABLES NOT FOR TAKE OUT BUT FOR THE RESTAURANTS.

ARE WE LOOKING AT THAT? THIS TIME OF YEAR, THE OUTDOOR IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE HEALTHIEST PLACE TO EAT AS OPPOSED TO

INDOOR ENVIRONMENT. >> M. GREESON: THAT WAS THE CONVERSATION AROUND EAST NEW ENGLAND WHERE ON FARMERS MARKETS YOU ARE UKASESMED TO THAT BE ISSUES DOWN.

ACCUSTOMED. BOTTOM LINE, I THINK WE'RE OPEN TO DOING THINGS WE WOULDN'T DO ON A ROUTINE BASIS BECAUSE WE WANT TO HELP BUSINESSES GET BACK UP AND GOING.

AND HELP THEM BE SUCCESSFUL. AND SO AS THOSE EMERGE, AND THEY

[02:15:06]

GET AS R. MCCORKLE SAID, THEY GET THEIR FEET ON THE GROUND AND THEY ARE READY TO START EXPLORING THOSE, WE'RE READY, WILLING AND ABLE TO COLLABORATE WITH THEM.

WE HAVE A TEAM SET UP TO DO THAT QUICKLY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY THOUGHTS OR COMMENTS EGARDING THE REBOOT PROGRAM OR THE REQUEST FOR THE $10,000? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN.

WE HAVE APPROVED $10,000 APPROPRIATION FOR THE FLAGS OR SIGNS. KEEP EVERYONE OPEN.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: DON'T ANYBODY TELL BOB JOSIE ABOUT

THAT. >> M. GREESON: HE MAYBE WATCHING. I'LL LET HIM KNOW.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I'M GLAD YOU ARE, NOT ME.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I GET IN MORE TROUBLE THAN YOU, SCOTT.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: PROBABLY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

MATT, YOU WANT TO GIVE A QUICK UPDATE ON THE RENEW OF THE

[9.B.I. Renewal of Sanitary Sewer Contract with Columbus]

SANITARY CONTRACT WITH COLUMBUS? >> M. GREESON: I'M GOING TO LET MR. LINDSEY, HE'S TAKEN POINT WITH THE CITY OF COLUMBUS.

IT'S ONE OF THE MANY THINGS WE'RE TRYING TO MOVE FORWARD DURING THESE INTERESTING TIMES. MR. LINDSEY.

>> MR. LINDSEY: THANK YOU, CITY MANAGER GREESON, COUNCILMEMBER PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

IF I COULD ASKS CITY LERK TO PUT UP A COPY OF THE MAP.

WHAT WAS A 20-YEAR SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY OF COLUMBUS, IS DUE TO EXPIRE THE END OF JUNE.

WE WERE WORKING TOWARDS HAVING SOMETHING FOR YOU PRIOR TO THAT.

COVID-19 AND OTHER AFFAIRS DELAYED SOME WORK.

BUT WE'RE CLOSE. THE LANGUAGE DOESN'T SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGE FROM THE PRIOR AGREEMENT.

IT DOES INCLUDE A 30-YEAR TERM INSTEAD OF THE 20-YEAR TERM.

IT WILL BE A WHILE BEFORE COUNCIL WILL HAVE TO CONSIDER THIS AGAIN. THE ONLY REALLY SIGNIFICANT CHANGE WE WANTED TO BRING TO YOU IN ADVANCE JUST TO MAKE SURE BEFORE GIVING COLUMBUS A TENTATIVE APPROVAL WAS A CHANGE IN THE SERVICE AREA. THE SEWER AND WATER AGREEMENTS BOTH PROVIDE FOR SERVICE AREAS THAT EXCEED THE CITY'S ACTUAL INCORPORATION LIMITS. COLUMBUS, AS YOU MAY KNOW, DID THAT MANY, MANY, MANY YEARS AGO WITH SEWER AND WATER TO HAVE AN ABILITY TO CONTROL ANNEXATION AND REQUIRE IT, WHICH IS HOW COLUMBUS CONTINUED TO GROW DURING THE PAST 50 OR I BELIEVE ALMOST 60 YEARS NOW. AND THAT WAS ATTRIBUTED TO THESE AGREEMENTS WITH THE SUBURBS THAT WOULD REQUIRE ANY UNINCORPORATED AREAS TO ANNEX TO THE CITY OF COLUMBUS OR THE VARIOUS SUBURBS BY AGREEMENT. THE CITY OF COLUMBUS HAS COME TO THE REALIZATION MORE RECENTLY THAT AT LEAST IN CERTAIN AREAS THAT POLICY IS FORCING ANNEXATION THAT MAY NOT BE OF ANY ECONOMIC BENEFIT TO THEM. AND THE SAME WOULD APPLY IN CERTAIN AREAS FOR THE SUBURBS. IN THIS PARTICULAR INSTANCE BECAUSE OF DISCUSSIONS THEY ARE HAVING WITH TERRY TOWNSHIP AND HOW THEY MIGHT SERVE THEM AND OTHER AREAS UNINCORPORATED AREAS, THEY HAVE ASKED WHETHER OR NOT THE BROOK SIDE ESTATES AREA THAT FORMERLY WAS PART OF THE BOUNDARY AREA THAT BE REMOVED. THE MAP SHOWS THAT AREA IN WHITE. THAT WHITE AREA IS CURRENTLY PART OF OUR BOUNDARY. AND WOULD BE REMOVED.

THAT IS THE WHITE AREA ENCIRCLED IN RED.

I KNOW YOU ALL KNOW WHERE BROOK SIDE IS BUT FOR CLARIFICATION OF THE RECORD. THEY MADE A COUPLE OF OTHER MINOR ADJUSTMENTS THAT AREN'T SIGNIFICANT.

UP NEAR THE INTERPASS AREAS, CONFORMING THE ACTUAL MAP TO THE BOUNDARIES THAT EXIST. THEY ALSO WENT AHEAD AND MADE A MINOR ADJUSTMENT FOR THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY.

LATER THIS YEAR WE'LL BRING TO YOU LEGISLATION TO AMEND THE CORPORATE BOUNDARY WITH COLUMBUS TO MOVE LAND FROM COLUMBUS A INTO THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON AND A SMALL IECE, VICE VERSA, THAT WOULD OCCUR, THEY WENT AHEAD AND PUT THAT IN THE SERVICE AREA MAP

[02:20:06]

SO WE DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE IT ONCE WE DO THE BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENT. I WENT LONGER THAN INTENDED.

I APOLOGIZE. THIS WILL BE COMING FORWARD NEXT MONTH. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, WE CAN CERTAINLY ANSWER THEM TONIGHT. IF YOU CAN GIVE US A HEADS UP OF THOUGHTS OR CONCERNS IN THE NEXT WEEK OR TWO WHILE YOU ARE OFF.

>> M. GREESON: IF I MAY ADD AND BOIL IT DOWN A LITTLE BIT FOR YOUR THOUGHT AS WE MOVE FORWARD IS THIS ESSENTIALLY IF REMOVED, WOULD NOT FORCE ANNEXATION OF THAT AREA.

SO IT'S PRESERVES PERRY TOWNSHIP IN THAT AREA.

THE RATIONALE FOR THAT WOULD BE THAT WE DON'T SEE ANY LARGE, LONG-TERM ECONOMIC BENEFIT FOR ANNEXING THE AREA .

IN FACT, IT WOULD PROBABLY COST MORE TO SERVE THAN GENERATE REVENUE. THAT IS THE LOGIC BOTH FOR COLUMBUS IN STARTING TO CHANGE SOME OF THEIR ANNEXATION POLICY TOWARDS THESE POCKETS. THAT WOULD BE THE LOGIC FOR US AS WELL IF WE CHANGE THE BOUNDARY, IT'S NOT NECESSARILY HIGHLY ECONOMICALLY BENEFICIAL. IS THAT FAIR, TOM?

>> MR. LINDSEY: I THINK THAT'S A GOOD SUMMATION.

AND I APPRECIATE THAT YOU POINTED OUT THE COST TO SERVE BECAUSE I ONLY MENTIONED THE ECONOMIC BENEFIT IN TERMS OF THESE RESIDENTIAL AREAS, NOT GENERATING INCOME TAX OF SIGNIFICANT BUT IT'S MORE CRITICALLY THEY DON'T GENERATE TAX THAT MEETS THE SERVICE OBLIGATION THEY WOULD REQUIRE.

SO THANK YOU. >> MR. LINDSEY: WE'LL PLAN ON BRINGING THAT BACK IN JULY FOR COUNCIL ACTION IF THERE ARE NO

FURTHER QUESTIONS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING THE POTENTIAL SEWER CONTRACT? HEARING NONE, MR. GREESON, DO YOU HAVE ANYMORE REPORTS FROM

STAFF? >> M. GREESON: NO.

IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING THAT, AS YOU ABSORB IT HERE THIS EVENING, GET THEM TO MR. LINDSEY OR I AND WE'RE GLAD TO FOLLOW-UP. WHEN IT'S PROMOTE WE NEED AN EXECUTIVE SESSION TO DISCUSS BOARD AND COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS. AND TO CONSIDER THE APPOINTMENT OF EMPLOYMENT -- WELL, CODIFIED ORDINANCES 109.10A, I'M TRYING TO GET BETTER ABOUT READING THE ACTUAL CODIFIED ORDINANCE SECTION, CONSIDER THE APPOINTMENT, EMPLOYMENT, DISMISSAL, DISCIPLINE, PROMOTION, DEMOTION, OR COMPENSATION OF A PUBLIC EMPLOYEE OR OFFICIAL, OR THE INVESTIGATION OF CHARGES OR COMPLAINTS AGAINST A PUBLIC EMPLOYEE. THAT'S THE WHOLE SECTION.

THOSE ARE THE REASONS. I APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO EXECUTIVE SESSION WHEN IT'S THE APPROPRIATE TIME.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: AS WE'RE MOVING ONTO THIS, ARE THERE ANY COUNCIL COMMENTS? COUNCIL REPORTS?

[10. Reports of Council Members]

MR. ROBINSON? >> D. ROBINSON: NOTHING, MADAM

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. DOR OTHY.

I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO THE FIRST WALK-UP MARKET ON SATURDAY. AND WAS VERY IMPRESSED.

THEY DID A GREAT JOB. OF COURSE, IT WAS RAINING SO THERE WEREN'T A LOT OF PEOPLE BUT IT CLEARED UP.

AND I THINK THEY DID A TREMENDOUS JOB IN ACCOMMODATING EVERYBODY AND DOING THE PROTOCOLS THEY NEEDED TO DO.

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO VISIT THE MARKET ON WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD. IF WE'RE OPEN, WE SHOULD FREQUENT THE FARMERS MARKET AS WELL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. AND MR. BUCHER?

>> P. BUCHER: NOTHING TONIGHT. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. AND I HAVE NOTHING TONIGHT.

SO WE'LL KEEP MOVING DOWN. MS. DOROTHY MOVES WE GO INTO
